A 34-year-old Melville man was sentenced Wednesday to 10 years in federal prison for storing child pornography on electronic devices, officials said.
U.S. District Judge Dee Drell sentenced Russell Guillory to 15 years supervised release, and ordered him to register as a sex offender once he’s released, U.S. Attorney Stephanie Finley said in a news release.
Guillory pleaded guilty Oct. 9. According to the plea, an investigation found that Guillory owned four electronic devices that contained 75 videos and six images of child porn.
“The court noted that the child pornography involved extremely young children and babies and was some of the most disturbing” content that Drell knew of, the released stated.
“The exploitation of children through pornography is a horrible and reprehensible crime,” Finley said in the release.
Homeland Security Investigations and Louisiana State police investigated the case, which was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Jamilla A. Bynog and John Luke Walker.
The case was part of Project Safe Childhood, a Justice Department program fighting the growth of child pornography, the release stated. For more information on the program, log onto projectsafechildhood.gov.
