Kaufman Man Sentenced to 84 Months in Federal Prison for Transporting and Possessing Child Pornography


DALLAS — Mitchell Weston Miller, 23, of Kaufman, Texas, was sentenced today by U.S. District Judge David C. Godbey to serve a total of 84 months in federal prison, following his guilty plea to one count of transporting and shipping child pornography, announced U.S. Attorney John Parker of the Northern District of Texas.  

Miller has been in custody since his arrest in August 2016. 

            According to the factual resume filed in the case, on November 23, 2015, Miller used his email account and the Internet to send and transmit files of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct.

 

            On December 22, 2015, Miller’s Google mail (Gmail) account uploaded eight images of child pornography. A search warrant for this same Gmail account showed the email account was used to trade child pornography and approximately fifty-five emails contained attachments of child pornography. Miller’s cell phone also contained child pornography.

 

            These cases were brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative launched in 2006 by the Department of Justice to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse.  Led by U.S. Attorney’s Offices and the Criminal Division’s Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section, Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state and local resources to better locate, apprehend and prosecute individuals, who sexually exploit children, and identify and rescue victims.  For more information about Project Safe Childhood, please visit http://www.justice.gov/psc/.  For more information about internet safety education, please visit http://www.justice.gov/psc/ and click on the tab “resources.”
