Cedaredge man sent to prison for having child porn

A Cedaredge man has been sentenced to eight years and one month in federal prison for possessing more than 600 hundreds images of child pornography.

Federal agents executed a warrant at the home 35-year-old Thomas Eugene Taylor in June 2007 based on information provided by his ex-girlfriend. Investigators seized a laptop, three hard drives and other materials.

A forensic review of the laptop and hard drives revealed child pornography videos. Specifically, investigators found videos of sadistic or masochistic images of children under the age of 12, according to Jeff Dorschner, spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Denver.

In addition to the prison term, U.S. District Judge Wiley Daniel this week ordered Taylor to spend five years on federal parole after his release.

“A child is victimized over and over again each time their pornographic image is redistributed or shared,” said James Davis, FBI special agent in charge of the Denver FBI office. “The FBI will aggressively pursue those who choose to harm, endanger and further victimize our children.”

Taylor was indicted by a federal grand jury in Denver in August 2007. He pleaded guilty to possession of child pornography on June 23.

The case was investigated by the FBI, the U.S. Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the New Castle Police Department and the Wyoming Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.
