Man convicted for producing child and infant porn

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

A Cincinnati man has been convicted of producing child pornography involving an 11-month old infant and a nine-year old child and placing the videos and images on the internet.

A U.S. District Court convicted James Napier, 39, on Thursday.

Trial testimony showed that in November 2009, Napier used an 11-month old infant for sexual gratification. Testimony states he molested the infant and made a video recording of it before placing it on the internet. Other testimony showed that as recently as November 2012, Napier sexually exploited a girl who was approximately nine years-old and produced videos of those acts.

FBI agents began investigating Napier based on information from the FBI office in Phoenix that Napier was advertising the sale of child pornography on a website. FBI agents arrested Napier on January 18, 2013. He has been held without bond.

After less than one hour of deliberation, the jury convicted Napier of nine counts of production of child pornography, each punishable by at least 15 and up to 30 years in prison. The jury also convicted Napier of one count each of transportation of child pornography, distribution of child pornography and receipt of child pornography. Each of those crimes is punishable by at least five years and up to 20 years in prison.

Judge Dlott will schedule a date for sentencing.

This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative designed to protect children from online exploitation and abuse.
