Tennessee Man Gets 160 Months In Federal Prison For Receipt Of Child Porn

A Tennessee man has been sentenced to prison after pleading guilty to receiving child pornography.

Justin Claude Richardson, 29, currently of Erwin, TN was sentenced by the Honorable R. Leon Jordan, in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Tennessee at Greeneville, to serve 160 months in federal prison.  

Upon release, Richardson will be supervised by U.S. Probation for 20 years and will be required to register with the state sex offender registry and comply with special sex offender conditions during supervised release.

As part of the plea agreement filed with the court, Richardson agreed to plead guilty to receipt of child pornography.

Additionally, the defendant was ordered to pay restitution to victims making claims, who were identified through the Child Victim Identification Program database operated by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC).

According to court documents, on May 13, 2019, officers stopped Richardson in Unicoi County, Tennessee, upon suspicion of his involvement in a kidnapping.  

Richardson was placed under arrest and his cellular telephone was seized.  Richardson’s cellular telephone contained approximately 2,364 images of child pornography, including images of bestiality, sadomasochistic acts, and infants. 

The web browser on the cellular phone reflected hundreds of searches for child pornography, with searches occurring shortly before Richardson’s arrest.

The criminal indictment was the result of an investigation by the Unicoi County Sheriff’s Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation.  This investigation was led by FBI Special Agent Bianca Pearson.

Assistant United States Attorney J. Gregory Bowman represented the United States.
