NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

Acting U.S. Attorney Duane A. Evans announced that Joseph Rivera, age 34, of New Orleans, was sentenced today after previously pleading guilty to a one-count indictment charging him with receipt of images and videos depicting the sexual exploitation of children.
 
U.S. District Judge Carl J. Barbier sentenced Rivera to five years imprisonment, followed by ten years of supervised release. Rivera will also be required to register as a sex offender pursuant to the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act.
 
According to court documents, law enforcement officials executed a search warrant at Rivera's residence on August 6, 2015, during which time they seized numerous electronic items including two computers, two external digital storage devices, and two DVDs contained images and videos of child pornography. A forensic examination of the device revealed that Rivera's used the devices to search for, download, and save images and videos of children as young as approximately one-year-old engaging in sexually explicit conduct. The forensic examination located approximately 6900 images and 885 videos of prepubescent children engaging in sexually explicit on Rivera's digital devices.
 
This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice. Led by United States Attorneys' Offices and the Criminal Division's Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section (CEOS), Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state and local resources to better locate, apprehend and prosecute individuals who exploit children via the Internet, as well as to identify and rescue victims.
