ALEXANDRIA, La. (DOJ) - A DeRidder man has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for possessing child pornography after previously being convicted of that same crime.

Edward Lee Daughenbaugh, 51, of DeRidder, Louisiana, was sentenced Wednesday for one count of possession of child pornography. The defendant was also sentenced to supervised release for the rest of his life.

According to the July 26, 2018, guilty plea, a U.S. Probation and Parole agent conducted an unannounced visit May 9, 2018, on Daughenbaugh, who had previously been convicted of possession of child pornography and was on supervised release. The agent found Daughenbaugh with a cell phone that had access to the internet, which the defendant was barred from possessing. The agent took possession of the cell phone, analyzed it forensically and found approximately 40 child pornography videos of young children under the age of 12.

A search warrant was executed at the defendant’s home, and law enforcement found a notebook that contained keyword searches that could be used to find prepubescent child pornography.

Daughenbaugh later admitted in an interview to downloading the child pornography.
