James Lockhart, 31, who formerly worked as a paramedic, pleaded guilty to making a porn tape, showing him raping his own 1-year-old daughter. He has been sentenced to 70 years in prison – not nearly severe enough, in my humble opinion. In all, Lockhart produced four video clips of him violating his daughter, and he put them online, using the names Strange Wood and Hard Wood. Police say that Lockhart had bragged about abusing another one-year-old. The mother identified the girl in the clips as her daughter and also recognized her husband’s hand. The good news is that he will die behind bars.
A Florida man was sentenced Thursday to 70 years in prison for recording a series of videos showing himself raping his one-year-old daughter that he then posted on the dark web.
James Lockhart, 31, who formerly worked as a paramedic, pleaded guilty to charges of producing, possessing and distributing child pornography in March. He was sentenced to 70 years in prison Thursday, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Florida announced, the New York Post reports.
Lockhart was arrested October 5, 2018 by Homeland Security after they found the footage on his computer along with a massive collection of child pornography including 4,000 images and 43 videos, the NY Post reports.
He also bragged about molesting another one-year-old child, according to authorities.
“This deviant committed the most horrible atrocities imaginable to a one-year-old child,” Homeland Security Investigations Tampa Assistant Special Agent in Charge Michael B. Cochran said.
“HSI’s national and international partnerships have helped ensure that this predator will never again harm a child,” he continued.
