LOUISIANA Online Child Predators 2013: Jason Long Sentenced to 40 Years in Prison for Receiving Child Pornography and Sexually Exploiting a Child

Judge Berrigan
Jason Long, age 36, of St. Charles Parish, Louisiana, was sentenced on May 22nd, 2013 by United States District Judge Helen G. Berrigan to a long 40 years in prison for receiving videos and images depicting the sexual victimization of children and, separately, recording sexually explicit images and videos of a child. Judge Berrigan also ordered the defendant to pay 267.010 USD to one of the victims whose images he downloaded and at least 150.000 USD to an additional victim. After his term of imprisonment, Long will be placed on supervised release for the rest of his life.

Long pleaded guilty on April 25th, 2012, to receiving images depicting the sexual victimization of children. According to plea documents, the investigation began on October 17th, 2011, when law enforcement officers executed a search warrant at Long’s home. Evidence gathered at the home revealed that he had used his computers to access “Peer-to-Peer” file sharing programs, and downloaded approximately 232 pictures and 169 videos of children being victimized. Additional Evidence demonstrated that Long searched for images on the World Wide Web, depicting minors engaged in specific types of conduct to download. The images Long searched for and ultimately downloaded, were of children as young as six-years-old engaged in a variety of sexually explicit conduct.

Court records also reflected that shortly after Long pleaded guilty to the above-described conduct, law enforcement officers learned that he had also previously recorded images and videos of himself sexually victimizing a toddler. Specifically, between 2006 and late 2007, Long recorded himself engaging in sexually explicit conduct with a child.  He then sent the videos and photographs via the Internet to “Edd,” an individual located in the United Kingdom. As a result of this conduct, the defendant pleaded guilty to producing sexually exploitative images of a child.
