United States Attorney Steven Russell announced that Davonte Andrews, 27, of Omaha, Nebraska, was sentenced today in federal court in Omaha for distributing child pornography. United States District Judge Brian C. Buescher sentenced Andrews to 130 months of imprisonment. There is no parole in the federal system.

On July 18, 2020, Andrews distributed approximately 11 images of child pornography over the internet via his Discord account. The Discord account contained chat messages between Andrews and another user concerning child pornography. On January 21, 2021, agents searched Andrews’s Omaha residence and located child pornography on his digital devices. There was approximately 905 images and 52 videos of child pornography depicting children between the ages of three and five years old, and 196 images and 58 videos depicting children between the ages of six and eight years old. The child pornography depicted children as young as two years old.
This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and 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. Led by U.S. Attorneys’ Offices and CEOS, Project Safe Childhood 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.
