“The conclusion of this case is another good example of how effective law enforcement agencies can be when they work collaboratively to take criminals off the street and away from our children,” said Mississippi Attorney General Jim Hood. “It’s extremely important for us to continue working together as state, federal and local partners to protect kids from those who would exploit and abuse them.”
“The United State Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Mississippi is committed to the protection of our children and will vigorously prosecute those predators who seek to exploit and abuse them. Our office appreciates the hard work of all the federal, state, and local agencies that participated in this investigation,” said U.S. Attorney Felica C. Adems.
The FBI Jackson Division’s Child Exploitation Task Force conducted the investigation with assistance form the Itawamba County Sheriff’s Department and the FBI in Auburn, Alabama.
