Georgia Man Sentenced to 15 Years Imprisonment for Conspiracy to Produce Child Pornography

U.S. Attorney Kenneth A. Polite announced that DANIEL NOLAN DEVOR, age 41, of Brunswick, Georgia, was sentenced today for conspiracy to produce child pornography

U.S. District Judge Nannette Jolivette Brown sentenced DEVOR to 180 months imprisonment and supervised release for fifteen years after his release.  DEVOR will also have to register as a sex offender upon his release from prison.

According to court documents, in November 2013, DEVOR was arrested by Special Agents with the United States Department of Homeland Security, Homeland Security Investigations (“HSI”), after they determined that DEVOR was responsible for conspiring with Abita Springs resident Jonathan Johnson and others to create and post videos depicting the sexual exploitation of children on the Internet.   DEVOR has been in custody since his arrest.

This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice. Led by United States Attorneys’ Offices and the Criminal Division's Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section (CEOS), Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state and local resources to better locate, apprehend and prosecute individuals who exploit children via the Internet, as well as to identify and rescue victims.

U.S. Attorney Polite praised the work of Homeland Security Investigations and the U.S. Postal Inspection Service in investigating this matter.  Project Safe Childhood Coordinator and Fraud Unit Chief, Assistant U.S. Attorney Brian M. Klebba, was in charge of the prosecution.
