Gulfport, Miss. -- A Biloxi man was sentenced to 136 months in prison, followed by a lifetime of supervised release, for receipt of child pornography.

Andrew Gilbert Landry, 51, was sentenced in U.S. District Court in Gulfport.  In addition to Landry’s term of imprisonment, the Court ordered restitution for victims in the amount of $15,000, and imposed an assessment of $3,000 under the Amy, Vicky, and Andy Child Pornography Victim Assistance Act of 2018.

According to court documents, Landry was identified by law enforcement as an individual utilizing a peer-to-peer file sharing network and knowingly receiving via the internet at least one visual depiction of a minor engaged in sexually explicit conduct.  Hard drives and a laptop computer recovered from Landry’s residence contained at least 800 videos and 80 still images of minors engaging in sexually explicit conduct, to include those under 12 years of age.    

Landry was indicted by a federal grand jury in September of 2022.  He pled guilty on November 2, 2023, to receipt of child pornography.

U.S. Attorney Todd W. Gee and Special Agent in Charge Eric DeLaune of Homeland Security Investigations made the announcement.   

The case was investigated by Homeland Security Investigations with assistance from the Cyber Crime Division of the Mississippi Attorney General’s Office. 

Assistant U.S. Attorney Andrea Jones prosecuted the case.                                                                                                        

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. Led by U.S. Attorneys' Offices and the Criminal Division's Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section (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.
