Robinson Sentenced to Sixty Years
for child pornography

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
June 15, 2012

OXFORD, Miss. – Felicia C. Adams, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Mississippi, and Raymond R. Parmer, Jr., Special Agent in Charge, Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) in New Orleans, announced that:

Brian Robinson, 30, of Potts Camp, was sentenced today by United States District Judge Sharion Aycock to 60 years in prison, stemming from various charges relating to the creation, distribution, and possession of child pornography. Robinson plead guilty in January to three counts of an indictment outlining these charges. Judge Aycock ordered Robinson to serve 30 years for the charge of creation of child pornography, 20 years for the charge of distribution and transmission of child pornography, and 10 years for the charge of possession of child pornography. Each of those sentences is to run consecutively, for a total of 60 years in prison.

“No crime touches us as law enforcement agents and as parents more deeply than the abuse of innocent children by the people they trust most,” said Raymond R. Parmer Jr., special agent in charge of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) in New Orleans. “Child pornography, when it is released onto the Internet, lives on forever. It haunts the children depicted in it, who live daily with the knowledge that countless strangers use an image of their worst experiences for their own gratification.”

At his plea hearing, Robinson admitted to creating various forms of child pornography with his five and six year old son and distributing it to others both inside and outside of the United States. Robinson’s prosecution is the result of a large-scale, ongoing, international investigation that has, to date, resulted in the arrest of 27 individuals, including 8 within the United States, and the identification of 138 child victims.

This case was investigated by special agents with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) and was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Paul Roberts.
