A Baton Rouge man who planned to abduct a 5- to 6-year-old girl and turn her into his sex slave was sentenced Wednesday to 25 years in prison by a federal judge who said the man’s stated intentions are horrifying.
Pierre A. Moosebroker Jr., who pleaded guilty in June to possession of child pornography and lying to FBI agents, also will be on supervised probation for the rest of his life once he completes his federal prison term.
Those FBI agents were investigating Moosebroker, 47, for alleged child porn and attempted kidnapping after he told a confidential informant that he wanted to kidnap a young child and make her his sex slave.
“This is probably one of the most egregious cases of this type that I’ve ever handled,” Senior U.S. District Judge James Brady told Moosebroker. “They are horrifying, to say the least. They are horrific.”
“The scheme that you outlined is something out of a TV horror story,” the judge added.
Brady said Moosebroker also made the statement that he enjoys being wicked. The judge said children and the public needed to be protected from a “depraved” Moosebroker.
The federal criminal complaint, signed by an FBI agent in March, detailed Moosebroker’s “desire and intention to kidnap a young female child and secure her in a room or structure that she cannot leave.” Moosebroker also told the informant he was interested in knowing where young female children are and if they are unattended.
“Today’s severe sentence is a just and appropriate outcome for this child predator,” U.S. Attorney Walt Green said.
“There is no doubt that both our district and our children have been made safer as a result,” he added. “I greatly appreciate the FBI for their dedicated and quick response to a situation that could easily have resulted in tragedy.”
As part of his plan to have a young child as a sex slave, Moosebroker even went so far as to tell relatives he was in the process of obtaining custody of his young daughter — a child that did not exist, according to federal authorities.
Moosebroker, who appeared before Brady shackled and wearing a green West Baton Rouge Parish Prison jumpsuit, declined the judge’s invitation to say something to the court before he was sentenced.
Moosebroker’s attorney, Assistant Federal Public Defender Wayne Blanchard, asked Brady to adopt the plea agreement in the case, which the judge did.
Brady also granted Blanchard’s request that Moosebroker be sent to a federal Bureau of Prisons facility where he can receive sex offender treatment.
The judge also ordered Moosebroker to undergo a psychosexual examination. He can have no contact with anyone under 18 once he is released from prison.
Moosebroker, who previously served time in Louisiana for a manslaughter conviction, was arrested in March and booked into East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on 17 counts of pornography involving a juvenile after authorities found child porn images on his computer at his Sarah Avenue home.
Those images included children under 13 performing sexual acts, authorities have said.
Brady ordered Moosebroker to forfeit that computer, as well as a cellphone that contained pornographic images.
