Lafayette man gets 14 years in child porn case

A judge this week sentenced a Lafayette man to 14 years in a federal prison for receiving child pornography on his computer, officials said.

U.S. District Court Judge Richard Haik on Thursday also ordered Gary Berry, 23, to 15 years of supervision once he’s released and to register as a sex offender.

Berry pleaded guilty in September to using file-sharing software to collect and distribute pornography of prepubescent children, “some involving infants,” online among other pedophiles online, U.S. Attorney Stephanie Finley said in a news release Friday.

The FBI and State Police investigated the case, prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Luke Walker.

The case was part of Project Safe Childhood, a Justice Department effort to fight the sexual exploitation and abuse of children, Finley said.
