Clinton Man Sentenced For Possession Of Child Pornography

Jackson, Miss - Christopher Allen Morace, 31, of Clinton, Mississippi, was sentenced in
U. S. District Court today to 120 months in federal prison followed by a lifetime of supervised
release for possession of child pornography, announced U. S. Attorney Gregory K. Davis and
Raymond R. Parmer, Jr. Special Agent in Charge of ICE Homeland Security Investigations (“HSI”). Morace was previously convicted of possession of child pornography in North Carolina and sentenced to one year in prison.

“Child pornographers often go to great lengths in an attempt to conceal their criminal actions,” said HSI New Orleans Special Agent in Charge Raymond R. Parmer Jr. "This case shows that despite those attempts to hide, HSI investigators are routinely able to identify and seek prosecution of these dangerous individuals to make our communities a safer place for law-abiding citizens everywhere.” Parmer oversees a five-state region including Mississippi , Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana, and Tennessee.
