According to a factual proffer of evidence presented during the court proceedings, on November 15, 2011, Evans contacted an undercover agent with the FBI’s Child Exploitation Task Force on a social network site.

Over those next two weeks, EVANS engaged in multiple online conversations with the undercover officer, during which he expressed an interest in meeting an underaged girl and engaging in sexual contact with her.

Evans also sent the undercover officer multiple images of child pornography and acknowledged that he actively traded child pornography with other individuals online. In the course of the online communications, Evans further expressed interest in watching the undercover performing sexual acts with the under-aged girl via web camera over the Internet and in having the undercover send him a video of the underaged girl engaged in sexual acts.

Law enforcement obtained an arrest warrant for Evans and a search warrant for his residence in Washington, D.C. On November 30, 2011, Evans was arrested. A forensic analysis of computer equipment inside Evans’ residence confirmed that he possessed approximately 560 images and 102 videos of child pornography, which were organized into various subfolders according to the category of sexual genre, fetish, and/or sexual acts.
