For the first time, in Louisiana, a man has been convicted and sent to prison for creating sexually grahic child pornography. Jerry Lucas was sentenced to 21 years in prison for sexually exploiting a child via the creation of sexually graphic images.
Lucas appeared in the 14 pictures that FBI agents found during a search of his home. Agents also recovered his laptop computer, Polaroid camera, digital camera and other items related to his sexual predation. The federal prosecutors relied on laws that prohibit possession or creation of child pornography on computers “manufactured outside the state of Louisiana and transported in interstate and foreign commerce,” as counsel put it.
