Sexual Predator Sentenced To More Than 16 Years In Federal Prison For Receipt Of Child Sex Abuse Images
Orlando, Florida – U.S. District Judge Wendy W. Berger has sentenced Trevor Lang (29, Oviedo) to 30 years in federal prison for receipt of child sex abuse material. The court also ordered Lang to forfeit a computer and hard drive which were used in the commission of the offense. Lang had pleaded guilty on November 17, 2022.
According to court documents, after a cyber tip was reported to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC), federal agents executed a search warrant on Lang’s residence and recovered several electronic devices. A search of those devices revealed that Lang had sent, received, and viewed hundreds of images and videos depicting the sexual abuse of children. At the time, Lang was on sex offender probation for a prior state offense.
This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. It was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Shannon Laurie.
This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse. 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 locate, apprehend, and prosecute individuals who sexually exploit children, and to identify and rescue victims.
