Galveston Resident Convicted of Two Child Pornography Charges

GALVESTON, October 19, 2017 - A 26-year-old man from Galveston County has entered a guilty plea to receipt and possession of child pornography, announced Acting U.S. Attorney Abe Martinez. 

 Lavelas Luckey first came to the attention of law enforcement after multiple images of child pornography were found associated with his online account.  Authorities later conducted a search of Luckey’s residence which eventually led to the discovery of 107 videos and 638 images of child pornography. 

Luckey admitted ownership of the child pornography as well as the online account he used to obtain it.   

During the plea hearing today, Luckey admitted to using peer-to-peer software to search for, download and obtain child pornography. He also admitted to distributing the child pornography through his online account.    

Sentencing has been set for Dec. 29, 2017, before U.S. District Judge George C. Hanks. At that time Luckey faces a minimum of five and up to 20 years imprisonment for receipt of child pornography and up to 10 years for possession of child pornography. Each count also carries a possible $250,000 maximum fine. 

The Pearland Police Department and the FBI conducted the investigation.  

Assistant U.S. Attorney Julie N. Searle is prosecuting the case which was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse. Led by the United States Attorneys' Offices and the Criminal Division's Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section, Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state and local resources to locate, apprehend and prosecute individuals who sexually exploit children, and to identify and rescue victims.
