Jennings man gets nearly 16 years for child porn

LAKE CHARLES, La. (AP) — A federal judge in Lake Charles has sentenced a 30-year-old man to nearly 16 years in prison for downloading hundreds of movies of child pornography.

U.S. Attorney Stephanie Finley says Seth Ryan Bivens of Jennings pleaded guilty last Nov. 1 to one count of receiving child pornography. But she says evidence presented at the guilty plea showed that he had downloaded 294 movies and 28 still images of child pornography to his computer and other devices.

Finley's news release on Friday said Judge Patricia Minaldi sentenced Bivens on Thursday to 15 years and 8 months in prison, followed by a lifetime of supervised release. He also must register as a sex offender.
