Maryland Man Sentenced In Child Porn Case

LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) — A 30-year-old Maryland man was sentenced in Lafayette, La., to eight years in prison for possessing child pornography.

U.S. Attorney Stephanie A. Finley tells The Advertiser Phillip Sessa Jr., of Essex, Md., was sentenced Tuesday by U.S. District Judge Richard T. Haik.

Prosecutors say an acquaintance of Sessa alerted authorities in November 2011 that Sessa’s personal computer at his Opelousas, La. home contained child pornography.

When questioned about the images on his computer, Sessa allegedly told authorities some were of his girlfriend’s children who lived in the Baltimore, Md., area.

Over the course of the investigation, authorities seized more than 150,000 images and videos. Sessa was arrested in January 2012 and pleaded guilty July 23, 2012.
