Two More Massive Sentences Handed Out in Separate Child Pornography Cases

In early April, courts handed down two major sentences in two big child pornography cases. Let’s take a look at both of them.

Jesse Evans: 21 Years for an "Unspeakable Crime"

In Denver, a judge sentenced 33-year-old Jesse Evans to a 21 year prison sentence on child pornography charges. The authorities discovered over 100 pornographic images and videos in Evans' possession, and a later investigation showed that the man had access to three prepubescent minors and that he had filmed these young people in pornographic situations.

John Walsh, a U.S. attorney, said: “he was actually assaulting children and recording that assault in photos or videos; [this was] an unspeakable crime and he deserves severe justice.” Police in Denver began investigating Evans last January, and an undercover detective accessed files on his computer using peer to peer sharing. After the search indicated that Evans possessed child pornography, authorities obtained a search warrant to search his home, where the Denver police allegedly found evidence of the pornography.

170 Year Sentence for "Project Hope" Volunteer

Meanwhile, out in Phoenix, Arizona, a charity worker faces a far more massive sentence --170 years behind bars -- after a jury convicted him of 10 counts of sexually exploiting a minor. The Arizona Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force caught 55-year-old John Landrum Jr. in January 2012. Authorities found ample evidence of child pornography at his home. His trial lasted only 15 days. Judge Harriet Chavez of Maricopa County Superior Court sentenced him to 17 years for each of the 10 counts against. Prior to his apprehension and arrest, Landrum had volunteered to help the homeless as part of Salvation Army’s Project Hope.

These two cases demonstrate just how seriously law enforcement – and the judicial system – take charges involving child pornography and sexual exploitation of minors. It can be very lonely and scary to face these charges, given the wide spread antipathy that society feels towards people who even stand accused of exploiting minors for sex.
