TUSCALOOSA, AL- On Friday, Oct.2, a federal judge sentenced a Tuscaloosa man for sexually exploiting two young children, announced U.S. Attorney Prim F. Escalona and FBI Special Agent in Charge Johnnie Sharp, Jr.

Chief U.S. District Judge L. Scott Coogler sentenced Matthew Miller, 32, to 7,200 months in prison for producing child pornography.

Miller was charged in a 20-count indictment for enticing two children under the age of 5 to engage in sexually explicit conduct to produce a visual production of such conduct.

A search warrant was obtained for the defendant’s electronic devices.

The forensic examination of those devices revealed 10 pornographic images that the defendant had produced of the children.

Miller pled guilty to these charges in Oct.19.

“Child predators seek out and victimize those that are the most innocent and vulnerable- children, ” said Escalona. “The sentences imposed today and yesterday in local child exploitation cases reflect the commitment of law enforcement in this district to prosecuting to the fullest extent of the law those who commit crimes against children.”

The crimes Miller admitted to were disturbing and sickening, Sharp said.

“I am proud of the work of the FBI on this case, and I applaud the sentence handed down today, as Miller will spend the rest of his natural life behind bars,” he said.

FBI Child Exploitation and Human Trafficking Task Force investigated the case, along with the Tuscaloosa County Sheriff’s Office Violent Crime Unit.

Assistant U.S. Attorney R. Leann White prosecuted the case.
