LAS VEGAS -- A U.S. District Judge has sentenced a Henderson man to 15 years in federal prison for multiple child pornography offenses.
Richard Carl Brown, 35, was convicted in February on several charges, including advertising, transporting and possessing child pornography. The advertising count mandated a sentence of at least 15 years in prison.
According to court records, an undercover Henderson Police officer started investigating possession and distribution of child pornography online in September 2011. The officer tracked an internet protocol address with numerous child pornography files available to share. During the investigation, officers found that Brown was the account holder of the internet address.
In October 2011, detectives searched Brown's house and seized computer equipment. An analysis of the equipment found it had more than 24,000 images of child pornography, including videos, police said.
