Ark. Man Charged For Rape Of Pineville Child

Posted: Updated:

BATON ROUGE, La. — An Arkansas man has been charged with the aggravated rape of a two-year-old Pineville child.

The state Attorney General office said Wednesday charged Daniel Eugene Burris, 60, of Huntsville, Arkansas, with two counts of aggravated rape. The charges come as a result of a joint investigation with the Louisiana Attorney General's High Technology Crime Unit, Madison County Sheriff's Office in Arkansas, U.S. Homeland Security Investigations and the Louisiana State Police.

On September 14, 2011, Burris was indicted by a federal grand jury in Alexandria for the production of child pornography.  In January 2012, Burris pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court in Fayetteville, Arkansas to knowingly traveling in interstate commerce to engage in illicit sexual conduct with a minor. 

According to Arkansas officials, an initial investigation was conducted in May 2011 by agents with Arkansas' Homeland Security Investigations and Madison County Sheriff's Office. 

Agents executed a search warrant on Burris' home where they located a computer, digital cameras, and other digital storage devices. A forensic examination of the computer and equipment revealed numerous videos of Burris engaging in sexual activity with small children. 

Burris admitted to Homeland Security Special Agents that he traveled numerous times from his home in Madison County to Louisiana to perform sexual acts on the minor victims reflected on the confiscated videos.  As a result of the evidence found, the Attorney General's High Technology Crime Unit opened its own investigation in Louisiana.

Several cases against Burris have come about as a result of the initial investigation in Arkansas.

This pending child pornography case is being prosecuted by the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Western District of Louisiana.

Burris remains incarcerated in the Rapides Parish Prison while facing the federal charges pending in U.S. District Court in Alexandria.  If convicted of aggravated rape, under Louisiana law, Burris faces a life sentence without the possibility of parole.
