Corey Bevins Sentenced to 25 Years in Prison for Making Pornographic Videos of 9-Year-Old Child

United States Attorney Andrew M. Luger today announced the sentencing of COREY VICTOR BEVINS, 39, to 25 years in prison for making pornographic images and videos of a nine-year-old child. BEVINS was originally charged by indictment on April 22, 2014, and pleaded guilty on June 30, 2015, to production, receipt and possession of child pornography. He was sentenced this morning in U.S. District Court in Duluth, Minn., before U.S. District Judge Richard H. Kyle.

“Bevins downloaded child pornography to help him groom a nine-year-old victim so that he could exploit that child,” said Assistant U.S. Attorney Deidre Aanstad. “He then produced child pornography of that same victim who he repeatedly sexually abused. The sentence imposed by the court is both fair and just.”

According to the defendant’s guilty plea, on July 17, 2012, BEVINS persuaded a nine-year-old child to engage in sexually explicit conduct so that he could make visual depictions, including videos, of such conduct. The videos show the defendant removing the child’s clothes and sexually assaulting the child. BEVINS also attempted to make child pornography involving the same child victim at least two other times during the summer of 2012.

According to the defendant’s guilty plea, on November 22, 2012, BEVINS used his computer to receive child pornography via a peer-to-peer file sharing program. The pornography depicted a pre-pubescent child engaged in sexually explicit conduct.

According to the defendant’s guilty plea, on January 7, 2014, within the confines of the White Earth Indian Reservation, BEVINS possessed at least five videos of child pornography depicting children engaged in various acts of sexually explicit conduct.

In total, BEVINS downloaded and possessed at least 60 digital media images and 269 videos of the sexual exploitation of children, including images and videos of prepubescent minors under the age of 12.

This was the result of an investigation conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Deidre Y. Aanstad prosecuted this case.
