From U.S. Department of Justice:

LUBBOCK, Texas — Lyle Shane Johnson, 46, of Lubbock, Texas, was sentenced today by U.S. District Judge Sam R. Cummings to 30 years in federal prison and a lifetime of supervised release, following his guilty plea in August 2012 to six counts of production, and attempted production of child pornography that involved six separate victims, announced U.S. Attorney Sarah R. Saldaña of the Northern District of Texas.

Johnson has been in custody since his arrest in June 2012, by officers with the Lubbock Police Department.

Johnson admitted that on December 25, 2009; July 27, 2010; August 27, 2010; January 24, 2011; March 16, 2011; and December 27, 2011; he used six individual minor females, including some younger than 12-years-old, to produce images and videos of the minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct.  At times Johnson photographed himself, together with the minor female, engaged in sexually explicit conduct.

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 U.S. Attorneys' Offices and the Criminal Division's Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section, Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state and local resources to better locate, apprehend and prosecute individuals who sexually exploit children, and to identify and rescue victims.  For more information about Project Safe Childhood, please visit  www.usdoj.gov/psc  For more information about Internet safety education, please visit www.usdoj.gov/psc and click on the tab "resources."           

The investigation was conducted by the FBI and the Lubbock Police Department.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Steven M. Sucsy of the U.S. Attorney's Office in Lubbock, Texas, was in charge of the prosecution.
