For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, Middle District of Georgia

Brad Tyler Suddeth, age 33, of Comer, Georgia was sentenced yesterday to serve 97 months in prison for possession of child pornography. The sentence was handed down in Athens by the Honorable C. Ashley Royal, United States District Court Judge for the Middle District of Georgia.

Mr. Suddeth pleaded guilty to possession of child pornography in November 2015. He was found to possess over 600 images of prepubescent children on his two iPhones. In addition, Suddeth admitted to engaging in inappropriate communications with female children as young as eight years old in Georgia and Illinois.  

Acting United States Attorney G.F. “Pete” Peterman, III stated:  “It is unfortunate that some individuals continue to prey on innocent children for their perverse gratification.  Hopefully, individuals such as Mr. Suddeth will realize that yesterday’s sentence of almost 8 years imprisonment, without parole, is the harsh consequence for their actions.”

The case was investigated by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation Child Exploitation and Computer Crimes Unit.  Assistant United States Attorney Danial Bennett prosecuted the case on behalf of the Government.

Questions concerning this case should be directed to Pamela Lightsey, Public Information Officer, United States Attorney’s Office, at (478) 621-2603.
