Should you currently stand accused of a Florida cybercrime, such as online child pornography, you may be interested in two recent cases out of Waycross, Georgia, and Dallas, Texas.
A federal grand jury has indicted Donnell Cornelius Shavers and Jacques Donte Taylor, both 22, for child enticement and child pornography production. They stand accused of soliciting two minors to participate in sex acts to create child pornography.
This arrest occurred as the result of a U.S. Department of Justice effort called Project Safe Childhood, which coordinates the resources of local, state, and federal authorities in the pursuit of locating, apprehending, and prosecuting sex offenders who prey on children.
The Atlanta ICE Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), Ware County Sheriff’s Office, and Liberty County Sheriff’s office worked together to identify and arrest Shavers and Taylor. Authorities stress these two individuals remain innocent until proven guilty.
One individual who has been found guilty – and now faces the consequences – is James Brian Rivers, a Dallas man recently convicted of producing child pornography and prepubescent child pornography.
Rivers used his cell phone to create sexually explicit videos and photos of a 2-year-old toddler. In June 2013, he left his phone at the house of a neighbor, who called the police after scrolling through the device and finding the images. Rivers will now spend 24 years in federal prison for his crimes.
When it comes to cybercrimes, child pornography represents one of the most pernicious offenses in the eyes of the law. If found guilty, Taylor and Shavers may face sentences similar to – or longer than – that of Rivers.
