Carriere Man Sentenced To Thirty Years In Prison On Child Pornography Charges
Gulfport, Miss – James Allen Myers, 67, of Carriere, Mississippi, was sentenced today by U.S. District Judge Louis Guirola, Jr. to serve a total of 360 months in federal prison followed by a lifetime of supervised release for one count of transportation of child pornography and six counts of possession of child pornography, announced U.S. Attorney Gregory K. Davis and Special Agent in Charge Raymond R. Parmer of Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) in New Orleans. Myers was also ordered to pay a $5,000 fine.
Myers lived in North Port, Florida, until 2013 when he moved to Carriere, Mississippi. He was found to be in possession of numerous computer hard drives, CDs, and other computer devices which contained over 20,000 images and videos of children engaging in sexually explicit conduct with adults. HSI agents examined the images and videos found on the electronic devices seized from Myers and were able to identify and locate three victims living in Florida who were depicted in the images found on Myers’ computers.
Myers was found guilty following a three day trial in August, 2014 in Gulfport. This case was investigated by Homeland Security Investigation agents in both Mississippi and Florida. It was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Glenda Haynes and Andrea Jones.
