Logansport Man Sentenced to 275 Months Imprisonment

For Production of Child Pornography

HAMMOND-Acting United States Attorney Clifford D. Johnson announced that Johnny Clay Amos, 52, of Logansport, Indiana was sentenced before District Court Judge Philip P. Simon for production of child pornography.

 

Amos was sentenced to 275 months’ imprisonment followed by 10 years of supervised release.

 

According to documents in this case, between July 2014 and January 2016, Amos paid individuals in the Philippines to provide minor children to perform sex shows via live-streaming webcam. During this time, Amos made more than 100 money transfers to the Philippines and, on at least ten separate occasions, induced young females to engage in sexually explicit conduct over the internet. On March 18, 2016, a search warrant was executed on Amos’s residence where over 800 videos and images of child pornography were found.

 

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and was handled by Assistant United States Attorney Abizer Zanzi.
