Former Philadelphia area man sentenced in child pornography after being nabbed in Honduras

A 27-year-old man from the Philadelphia area has been sentenced for having child pornography on his computer.  Charles Lefebvre, formerly of Rockledge, was sentenced to 60 months in prison possessing child pornography on his computer.  Assistant United States Attorney Emily McKillip describes the images.

“Almost five hundred video files and a number of still image computer files that he obtained from the Internet. In this case, the majority of his collection were children who were under the age of 12 including children being sexually abused as young as ages three and five,” said McKillip.

McKillip says statements from some of the children abused in the videos and images were used against Lefebvre.

“They spoke to the continuing harm that they suffer knowing that anyone they meet on the street may have seen them in the worst moments of their lives,” said McKillip.

Federal investigators tracked Lefebvre to Honduras where he was arrested and brought back to face trial where he entered a guilty plea.
