An upstate man received a lengthy prison sentence after he pled guilty during a child pornography investigation.

United States Federal Court Judge Henry Herlong sentenced Lorenzo W. Briones, 37, of Simpsonville, to 10 years in prison for possession of child pornography. Furthermore, Herlong added that Briones be on supervised release from the remainder of his life.

According to evidence presented at Briones' plea hearing, U.S. Attorney Bill Nettles stated that agents were conducting a online investigation into individuals sharing child porn. On April 18, 2012, agents downloaded six files from a shared directory located at an IP address associated with Briones. Nettles stated that based on the result, agents obtained a search warrant for Briones residence on May 25, 2012, and removed computers and other electronic storage devices from his residence. A forensics examination revealed multiple images and videos of children under the age of 18 engaging in sexual acts. Over 120 child porn videos and multiple still images were found on Briones computers.

The case was investigated by agents of the Department of Homeland Security, Office of Investigations. The case was brought as part of the Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide program designed to protect children from online exploitation and abuse.
