Carriere man to serve 30 years for transporting, possessing child porn

CARRIERE, MS (WLOX) - A Carriere man will spend the next 30 years in prison after being found guilty of transporting and possessing child porn. U.S. Attorney Gregory Davis said James Allen Myers, 67, was sentenced Tuesday after being found guilty of transportation of child porn and six counts of possession of child porn in August.

Davis said Myers lived in North Port, FL, until 2013 when he moved to Carriere. While living in South Mississippi, agents with Homeland Security Investigations found 20,000 images and videos of children engaging in sexual acts with adults in Myers' possession.

Davis said HSI investigators were able to locate three of Myers' victims in Florida.

In addition to 30 years in prison, Judge Louis Guirola, Jr. sentenced Myers to a lifetime of probation and a $5,000 fine.
