Serial Child Sexual Abuser Sentenced to 60 Years in Prison

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

A Dallas man who filmed himself sexually assaulting girls as young as six years old was sentenced today to 60 years in federal prison, announced U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Texas Leigha Simonton.

Gemond Copage Miller, 34, was indicted in December 2021 and pleaded guilty in January 2024 to two counts of production of child pornography. He was sentenced Wednesday by U.S. District Judge Brantley Starr, who also ordered that the defendant be supervised for life following his release from prison.  

According to plea papers, Mr. Miller filmed himself sexually assaulting children as young as six years old, then sold the footage on the internet.

Investigators were able to match distinctive tattoos shown in the footage to Mr. Miller’s tattoo.

At Wednesday’s sentencing hearing, prosecutors said Mr. Miller admitted to abusing at least ten girls under the age of twelve. Law enforcement identified at least 38 videos of child sexual abuse material produced by Mr. Miller. To date, not all of the victims have been identified.

Mr. Miller was also in possession of approximately 722 images and 1,733 videos constituting child sexual abuse material.

“My sense of safety and security has been shattered,” a 13-year-old victim, just six years old when she was first assaulted, said in a statement read aloud by her mother. “I am the first victim to come forward… Knowing that there are others shows that this is what he does. This is who he is. And he does not care that he took the innocence of children.”

Homeland Security Investigations' Dallas Field Office and the Dallas Police Department conducted the investigation, which began with a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. Assistant U.S. Attorney Michelle Winters prosecuted the case.
