United States Attorney Richard W. Moore of the Southern District of Alabama announces that James
Derrick Robertson, age 53, of Demopolis, Alabama
was sentenced today after earlier pleading guilty to receiving child
pornography and obstruction of justice.
According to information presented at the sentencing hearing,
Robertson taught students at Demopolis High School to operate the sound
system at the school. On February 18, 2017, the principal of the high
school contacted the Demopolis Police Department regarding a complaint
about Robertson. Pursuant to this investigation, a search warrant was
executed at Robertson’s home and his computers were seized.
In court documents filed in connection with his guilty plea,
Robertson admitted that an examination of his hard drive revealed that
he had possessed four videos of underage girls performing fellatio on
adult males. Two of the girls appeared unconconscious. A forensic
search of his telephone revealed two images of toddlers who were being
Robertson also admitted that he became aware of the investigation on
February 19, 2017, and that he searched the internet for methods to
destroy data to prevent recovery by forensic tools and then downloaded a
wiping program and deleted searches for child pornography, images of
child pornography and incriminating chats with minors.
At sentencing, the United States argued that the defendant had
downloaded images that with titles suggesting they were of violent acts
against young girls including rape. Judge Callie V. S. Granade found
that Robertson was a danger to the community and ordered that he be
imprisoned for 235 months, followed by a lifetime of supervised
release. Robertson will be required to register as a sex offender.
This case was investigated by the Demopolis Police Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
