School Bus Driver Sentenced to 25 Years for Producing Child Pornography

NORFOLK, Va. – Larry Carl Homan, 71, of Norfolk, was sentenced today to 300 months in prison and lifetime supervised release for production of child pornography.

Homan pleaded guilty on Dec. 21, 2015.  According to court documents, in May 2015, a concerned parent complained to her daughter’s school that Homan, a school bus driver in Chesapeake, had acted inappropriately towards her daughter.  A review of the surveillance footage from Homan’s school bus resulted in Homan being suspended without pay.  The Chesapeake Police Department (CPD) became involved and executed a search warrant at Homan’s residence in Norfolk.  A number of electronic devices were seized from Homan’s apartment.  The CPD analyzed the electronic devices and found that Homan had been producing child pornography inside his apartment in Norfolk.

Dana J. Boente, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia; Michael Lamonea, Assistant Special Agent in Charge of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations Norfolk; Michael Goldsmith, Chief of Norfolk Police; and Col. K.L. Wright, Chief of Chesapeake Police, made the announcement after sentencing by Senior U.S. District Judge Robert G. Doumar.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Elizabeth M. Yusi prosecuted the case.
