Deatsville Man Sentenced to 17.5 Years in Prison for the Sexual Exploitation of a Child

For Immediate Release

           Montgomery, Ala. –    Today, United States Attorney Sandra J. Stewart announced that a 34-year-old man from Deatsville, Alabama, Matthew Aaron Windsor, received a 210-month prison sentence for the sexual exploitation of a 5-year-old child. Following his sentence, Windsor will be on supervised release for the remainder of his life and will be required to register as a sex offender. There is no parole in the federal system.

            According to Windsor’s plea agreement and other court records, this case arose from an April 2020 tip to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. The tip indicated that obscene images of a minor had been uploaded from an online account. The Alabama Law Enforcement Agency began an investigation and that investigation revealed that Windsor was linked to the images. During his plea hearing in July of 2022, Windsor specifically admitted to enticing a five-year old to engage in sexually explicit conduct for the purpose of recording and creating images of the exploitation. In his plea agreement, Windsor also admitted to possessing at least 600 illegal images.

            This case was investigated by the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency, the Elmore County Sheriff’s Office, and the Autauga County Sheriff’s Office, with assistance from the Child Protect Children’s Advocacy Center in Montgomery and the Alabama Department of Forensic Sciences. Assistant United States Attorney J. Patrick Lamb prosecuted the case.
