Newport News Man Pleads Guilty to Receiving Child Pornography
Defendant shared child pornography on a peer-to-peer network
NEWPORT NEWS, Va. – Isaiah Al’Von Holloman, 21, of Newport News, pleaded guilty today to a charge of receiving child pornography.
Dana J. Boente, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia; and Michael F. Paul, Acting Special Agent in Charge of the FBI’s Norfolk Field Office, made the announcement after the plea was accepted by U.S. Magistrate Judge Tommy Miller.
Holloman was indicted by a federal grand jury on Nov. 19, 2014. According to a statement of facts filed with the plea agreement, law enforcement linked certain file-sharing activity online to Holloman’s residence. Law enforcement agents executed a search warrant on Holloman’s home and seized a hard drive that contained more than 600 images of child pornography. Holloman admitted to downloading images of child pornography and to using a peer-to-peer network to share child pornography files. Holloman also admitted that he used false names to set up accounts to obtain child pornography, and that he possessed hundreds of videos containing child pornography.
This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Lisa R. McKeel is prosecuting the case.
