Henderson man gets 15 years in child pornography case

A Henderson man was sentenced to 15 years in prison and a lifetime supervised release on Wednesday after he was found guilty on multiple child pornography charges.

Richard Carl Brown, 35, was convicted in February on one count each of advertising child pornography, transporting child pornography, receipt of child pornography and possession of child pornography.

A Henderson Police detective discovered that Brown was distributing child pornography during an investigation in September 2011, said Daniel Bogden, U.S. attorney for the district of Nevada. During the investigation, the detective found an Internet protocol address linked to Brown that had numerous files containing child pornography available for sharing on an online network known as Gnutella.

The detective issued a search warrant at Brown’s house and seized his computer equipment, which revealed at least 24,950 images of child pornography, Bogden said.

Brown had worked in the computer service industry in Las Vegas from 2005 to 2011, and had no prior convictions, Bogden said.

  1. Good. 15 years might not be long enough.
