Baton Rouge man pleads guilty to possession of child porn, lying to the FBI _lowres

Pierre Moosebroker, 46

A 46-year-old Baton Rouge man who pleaded guilty this week to federal child porn charges planned to kidnap a 5- to 6-year-old girl and force her to be his sex slave, telling relatives he was in the process of obtaining custody of his young daughter — a child that didn’t exist, federal authorities allege.

In addition to possession of child pornography, Pierre A. Moosebroker Jr. pleaded guilty Thursday to lying to FBI agents investigating him for alleged child porn and attempted kidnapping.

U.S. Attorney Walt Green said Friday that Moosebroker, subject to U.S. District Judge James Brady’s approval, will be sentenced to 25 years in federal prison, followed by a lifetime of probation.

Brady did not set a sentencing date.

Moosebroker’s attorney, Assistant Federal Public Defender Wayne Blanchard, declined comment Friday.

Moosebroker, who previously served time in Louisiana for a manslaughter conviction, was arrested in early March and booked into Parish Prison on 17 counts of pornography involving a juvenile after authorities discovered child porn images on his computer at his Sarah Avenue home.

East Baton Rouge Parish District Attorney Hillar Moore III said Friday his office won’t formally charge Moosebroker.

“This matter has successfully been handled in federal court by the U.S. Attorney’s Office. Based on the defendant’s plea and sentence, the state will not pursue any charges against him,” Moore said.

A Baton Rouge federal grand jury indicted Moosebroker in late March on a charge of possession of child pornography. Federal prosecutors also charged him earlier this month with making false statements to FBI agents.

A bill of information filed June 11 contends Moosebroker, while being questioned by agents in March and April, falsely stated he had not intended to obtain child porn images downloaded to his computer, had never planned to force a female child to engage in sexual activity with him, had not told anyone he had a daughter and had not told anyone he was obtaining custody of his alleged daughter.

“In fact, as Moosebroker well knew, he had intentionally obtained the images of child pornography downloaded to his computer tablet, had planned to use violence in order to force a young female child to engage in sexual activity with him and had told relatives that he had a young female daughter whom he was in the process of obtaining custody over,” Green and Assistant U.S. Attorney Chris Dippel claim in the bill of information.

A chilling federal criminal complaint filed March 9 alleges Moosebroker told a confidential informant he wanted to kidnap a 5- to 6-year-old girl and make her his sex slave.

The informant recorded Moosebroker detailing “his desire and intention to kidnap a young female child and secure her in a room or structure that she cannot leave,” according to the complaint. He also told the informant he was interested in knowing where young female children are and if they are unattended, the complaint states.
