PLAQUEMINES PARISH, LA (WVUE) -

The Plaquemines Parish Sheriff’s Office announced the arrest of 27-year-old Matthew Wade Guillory of 1804 Madewood Road, Laplace, for distributing child pornography.

The Louisiana Attorney General’s Office Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, which the Plaquemines Parish Sheriff’s Office is a part of, arrested Guillory at his Laplace home on November 17. Guillory was taken into custody by the task force after they served a search warrant on his residence and obtained evidence connecting him to the crime.

The program is a national network of 61 coordinated task forces representing over 3,500 federal, state, and local law enforcement and prosecutorial agencies. The agencies are involved in both proactive and reactive investigations, forensic investigations and criminal prosecutions.

The Plaquemines Parish Sheriff’s Office started an undercover investigation into the distribution of pornography involving juveniles on October 9.

During the investigation, deputies say Guillory shared software files, by way of a computer network, with a PPSO Detective Sergeant working undercover.

Investigators examined the files that Guillory shared and determined they contained multiple images of what appeared to be child pornography. Further review of the shared files revealed they contained nude photos and sexual intercourse videos of prepubescent females between 6 and 13 years old.

Detectives say Guillory admitted to searching for and downloading child pornography on the internet. He allegedly also admitted to investigators that the youngest victim he had downloaded appeared to be an infant.

Guillory’s computer was seized as evidence and it will undergo forensic examination by the Louisiana Attorney General’s Office Cyber Crime Unit. Additional charges may be filed, pending the result of the examination.

Guillory was taken to the St. John Parish Sheriff’s Office Jail where he was booked with four counts of possession of child pornography, two counts of video voyeurism, possession with the intent to distribute marijuana, an outstanding Plaquemines Parish theft warrant, and as a fugitive from Plaquemines Parish for one count of distribution of child pornography.

If convicted, Guillory faces up to 20 years in prison for each count of pornography involving juveniles.
