United States Attorney David C. Joseph announced that a Scott man was sentenced Tuesday to five years and seven months in prison for possessing child pornography on a Dropbox account. 

Officials say that 25-year-old Larry Guidry of Scott was sentenced on one count of possession of child pornography.

He was also sentenced to 10 years of supervised release and must register as a sex offender. According to the July 10, 2018, guilty plea, law enforcement agents received information that an online Dropbox account was being used to store child pornography.

Dropbox is internet service used to store digital information such as documents, images and other data.

Agents searched the account and found 100 images and 23 videos of child pornography. Agents searched Guidry’s residence on February 21, 2018, and arrested him. He admitted to uploading the images to Dropbox.

This case is part of Project Safe Childhood, a U.S. Department of Justice nationwide initiative to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse.
