Shocking Florida Pornography Case: Ex Miami Firefighter Faces 27-Year Prison Sentence for Downloading Child Pornography Videos

If you or someone you love stands accused of downloading child pornography or some other Florida cybercrime, you might have a certain degree of empathy for 31-year-old Alexander Rousseau, a former Miami firefighter who just got handed a 27-year prison sentence.

According to prosecutors, Rousseau had downloaded pornographic videos of children at the fire station where he used to work. On the witness stand, he denied culpability. However, the federal jury hearing the case did not buy his defense. In fact, U.S. District Judge Michael Moore gave Rousseau the 27-year sentence not just because of the nature and diversity of the crimes -- his laptop computer apparently held many videos of prepubescent girls doing pornographic activity -- but also because he said that the ex-firefighter obstructed justice by lying during the court process.

Authorities arrested Rousseau in April at Miami’s fire station No. 6 – he had been with Miami Fire Rescue since 2007 – and later hit him with 6 counts of possession of pornography on his laptop. Florida, Miami and federal law enforcement collaborated to charge Rousseau with the cybercrime charges. These agencies often use a variety of sting operations and surveillance processes to find potential offenders and bring them to justice.

In reporting on Rousseau’s arrest and charges, the Miami Herald compared this case to one of the most ironic Florida cybercrime cases in recent years: “South Florida’s special agent in charge of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Anthony Mangione, whose career… was built in part on investigating internet crimes against children” was himself ultimately arrested and charged with Florida cybercrimes.
