Agents: Carriere man had 20,000 child porn images, videos

CARRIERE, MS (WLOX) -

A Carriere man faces up to 80 years in prison after being found guilty of transportation and possession of child pornography. Prosecutors say James Allen Myers, 66, lived in North Port, Florida, until 2013 when he moved to Carriere.

Agents with Homeland Security Investigations seized a number of computer hard drives, CDs, and other computer devices from Myers which contained more than 20,000 images and videos of children engaging in sexually explicit conduct with adults.

From those pictures and videos, agents were able to identify and locate three victims living in Florida.

The three day trial wrapped up this week. Myers will be sentenced on November 4 by Chief U.S. District Judge Louis Guirola. Again, the maximum penalty for transportation of child pornography is 20 years in prison. The maximum penalty for each count of possession of child pornography is 10 years in prison.
