Sulphur man sentenced to 17 years for receiving child porn

The following is a Press Release from The United States Department of Justice:

United States Attorney Stephanie A. Finley announced today that Lester Hugh Golden, 31, of Sulphur, La., was sentenced to serve 17 ½ years in federal prison for possession of child pornography. The sentence was handed down by U.S. District Judge Richard T. Haik in federal court in Lafayette, La. In addition to the prison term, the judge also sentenced Golden to a lifetime of supervised release.

Golden pleaded guilty in February of 2012, to receiving child pornography. According to court documents previously filed with the court, an undercover investigation revealed that the defendant attempted to join a child pornography website multiple times.

During an FBI search at Golden's residence, the defendant confessed to downloading child pornography from the internet on numerous occasions. A forensic examination of the defendant's computer revealed 1,600 images and 75 videos of child pornography.

The case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Lake Charles Resident Agency. The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney John Luke Walker.
