Henderson man sentenced to 97 months in prison for possession of child pornography

LAS VEGAS - A Henderson man who pleaded guilty to possession of approximately 900 photos and videos of child pornography was sentenced Thursday.

U.S. District Judge James C. Mahan sentenced Brian Christopher Fisher to 97 months in prison, along with a lifetime supervised release.
 
Fisher, 43, pleaded guilty to one count of possession of child pornography. According to the plea agreement, during an online peer-to-peer child pornography investigation, law enforcement downloaded child pornography files from computers belonging to Fisher. Law enforcement officers then obtained and executed a search warrant for Fisher’s home. 

Fisher admitted that he viewed, downloaded, and possessed approximately 732 photos and 169 videos of children performing sex acts with men and women, animals, and other juveniles. 

The case was investigated by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations (ICE-HSI). Assistant U.S. Attorney Elham Roohani prosecuted the case.
 
This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse. 

Led by the United States Attorneys' Offices and the Criminal Division's Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section, Project Safe Childhood marshals, federal, state, and local resources to locate, apprehend, and prosecute individuals who sexually exploit children, and to identify and rescue victims.
