“Protecting our innocent children from internet predators will remain a top priority of our office,” said Minkler. “Distributing pornography re-victimizes our children every time it is passed from one person to another.”
Prideaux pleaded guilty to the charge immediately before being sentenced yesterday. Prideaux admitted that he used a laptop computer to search for and download child pornography using file sharing software that he loaded on to the computer system. Prideaux operated the computer from his residence in Evansville, Indiana, before the computer was seized by law enforcement investigators on November 1, 2012.
