United States Attorney Stephanie A. Finley announced that Gary Berry, 23, of Lafayette, was sentenced May 1 by U.S. District Judge Richard T.

According to evidence presented at the guilty plea on September 5, 2013, law enforcement detected Berry using file-sharing software to collect and distribute child pornography online in 2012. Law enforcement searched Berry’s home and found hardcore prepubescent child pornography, some involving infants, on his computer.
