For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, Northern District of Florida

GAINESVILLE, FLORIDA – Timothy Frederick Murphy-Johnson, 40, of Gainesville, Florida, and Olivia Ashford Henn, 21, of Orlando, Florida, entered guilty pleas to conspiracy to produce child pornography, and two counts of production of child pornography. Murphy-Johnson also pleaded guilty to transporting the child from Texas to Florida for the purpose of sexual abuse. The pleas were announced by Jason R. Coody, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Florida.

At the plea hearings, Murphy-Johnson admitted to causing a child to be transported from Corpus Christi, Texas, to Gainesville, Florida in early June 2023.  Between June 11, 2023, and July 25, 2023, the child was maintained at Murphy-Johnson’s residence in Gainesville, Florida. The child was subjected to extreme sexual abuse which was filmed by both Murphy-Johnson and Henn. During this time, Murphy-Johnson and Henn engaged in numerous conversations—in person, by cell phone, and through internet-based messaging—in which they discussed the child’s physical and mental condition, sexual acts involving the child, and their mutual concern regarding being arrested if discovered by law enforcement. On July 25, 2023, law enforcement officers investigating the reported disappearance of the child from Texas executed a search warrant at Murphy-Johnson’s residence in Alachua County, Florida.  The child was rescued, and Murphy-Johnson and Henn were arrested.

Sentencing for both Murphy-Johnson and Henn is scheduled for June 25, 2024, at 11:30 a.m., at the United States Courthouse in Gainesville before United States District Judge Allen C. Winsor. 

Murphy-Johnson faces a sentence of 15 years to life imprisonment and five years to life on supervised release.  Henn faces a sentence of 15 to 90 years imprisonment and five years to life on supervised release.

The case resulted from a joint investigation by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, the Alachua County Sheriff’s Office, the Texas Department of Public Safety, and the Department of Homeland Security Investigations. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney F.T. Williams.

This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse. Launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice and led by the U.S. Attorney’s Offices and the Criminal Divisions Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section (CEOS), it marshals federal, state, and local resources to better locate, apprehend, and prosecute individuals who exploit children via the Internet, as well as to identify and rescue victims.
