From the United States Attorney

BATON ROUGE, LA –United States Attorney Brandon J. Fremin announced that United States District Court Chief Judge Shelly D. Dick sentenced Colt Gibson, age 35, of Livingston Parish, Louisiana, to serve 73 months in federal prison following his conviction for receipt of child pornography. Following his release from imprisonment, GIBSON will serve a 5-year term of supervised release.

As set forth in GIBSON’s plea agreement, GIBSON used file-sharing software to download a video from the internet of a prepubescent female engaged in sexually explicit conduct with an adult male. A subsequent forensic examination of the defendant’s computer and other electronic devices revealed at least 300 additional videos of child pornography, including depictions of toddlers and prepubescent females, which the defendant had downloaded from the internet.

U.S. Attorney Fremin stated, “Online child sexual exploitation investigations and prosecutions will continue to be priority for this office and those who engage in such vile behavior will be held accountable. Those who receive or possess child pornography contribute to the continuing victimization of child victims and create demand for future exploitation which will not be tolerated. I greatly appreciate the excellent and hard work of the prosecutors and agents who handle these challenging cases.”

Eric J. Rommal, FBI New Orleans Special Agent in Charge stated, "Locating and apprehending child predators and pornographers has always remained a top priority in the FBI. Through the New Orleans Child Exploitation and Human Trafficking Task Force, we work closely with our federal, state, and local law enforcement partners to identify, investigate, and arrest individuals engaged in the exploitation of our children."

"As a father, I know I would do anything to protect my son," said Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry. "Since taking office, I have teamed with law enforcement partners to protect Louisiana's children. I thank the work of my team and the U.S. Attorney's Office in bringing this child predator to justice.”

This matter was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Louisiana Attorney General’s Office Cyber Crime Unit, with assistance from the Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office and Louisiana State Police. This case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Elizabeth E. White.

These federal charges are part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative by the U.S. Department of Justice to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse. Led by the United States Attorney’s Offices and the Criminal Division’s Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section, Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state, and local resources to locate, apprehend, and prosecute those who sexually exploit children, and to identify and rescue victims.
