Provided by United States Attorney Sarah R. Saldana

Miles Robert Flinn, 26, formerly of Lubbock, Texas, was sentenced Friday by U.S. District Judge Sam R. Cummings to 10 years in federal prison and a 10-year term of supervised release, following his guilty plea in November 2012 to one count of possession of child pornography, announced U.S. Attorney Sarah R. Saldaña of the Northern District of Texas. Judge Cummings ordered that Flinn, who presently resides in Bradenton, Florida, surrender to the Bureau of Prisons on April 26, 2013.

According to the factual resume filed in the case, while living in Lubbock, Flinn used a file-sharing program on his computer in his residence to download images and videos from the Internet, including child pornography. Flinn was found to be in possession of the child pornography on his computer hard drive on July 26, 2011.

This matter 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.
