An Arnaudville man was sentenced to 90 years in prison for producing child pornography.

United States Attorney David C. Joseph announced today that 35-year-old Joseph Martin of Arnaudville was sentenced on three counts of production of child pornography.

He was also sentenced to 20 years of supervised release if he is ever released and must register as a sex offender.

According to the June 4, 2018 guilty plea, law enforcement agents executed a search warrant at Martin’s property and found electronic storage devices in a shed on the property.  Upon review of the electronic storage devices, agents found numerous videos of child pornography that Martin had made.  Some of the child pornography depicted a child of approximately 4 years old and others depicted a child of approximately 10 months old.

The images dated back to 2015.
