Registered Sex Offender Convicted of Distribution and Possession of Child Pornography

U.S. District Judge Gray Miller has convicted Burt Hughes, 58, a Houston resident, of one count each of distributing and possessing child pornography following a stipulated facts bench trial this morning, United States Attorney José Angel Moreno announced today.

Indicted in August of last year, Hughes requested a trial before Judge Miller without a jury. During the trial held this morning, the United States provided the court with evidence which proved Hughes was distributing child pornography images through peer-to-peer software using his home computer.

Initially, the La Porte Police Department downloaded several images of child pornography from Hughes. The images were passed on to the FBI Innocent Images Task Force. Based on the information obtained from the downloads, a search warrant was issued. The warrant was executed at Hughes’ residence where several computers were seized. Forensic analysis of the computer revealed more than 560 videos containing child pornography.
