Man sentenced for having porn on cellphone

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - A 32-year-old Zachary man was sentenced to five years and 10 months in federal prison after he admitted he persuaded a 14-year-old girl to text him nude photographs of her torso in 2010.           

The Advocate reports Chief U.S. District Judge Brian A. Jackson also ordered Christopher S. Brown to pay a $5,000 fine and serve 10 years of post-prison supervision by federal investigators.           

Brown also pleaded guilty to possession of a cellphone with illegal images of two other girls, one believed to be 8 years old two years ago.           

Those images were of an adult male's hands sexually fondling the two little girls in their sleep.           

The same cellphone also contained text messages between Brown and the 14-year-old girl from 2010, according to testimony last summer by FBI Special Agent Tom Tedder.           

In one of those messages, Tedder testified, Brown told the 14-year-old: "You know the pic I really want."           

Regarding the images of the two girls who were fondled in their sleep, Tedder testified that a forensic pediatrician estimated that one was "most likely under the age of 8." The same pediatrician, who has 35 years of experience, estimated that the other girl was "in her teens," Tedder testified.           

Brown's cellphone was recovered by a woman at the scene of a car crash in St. Francisville in September 2010, Assistant U.S. Attorney Alan A. Stevens said in court records last year.           

The woman recognized the 14-year-old's photograph on that cellphone, Stevens said. The prosecutor said the woman contacted St. Francisville Police, who later turned the cellphone over to the FBI.
