The FBI’s Child Exploitation Task Force (CETF), working with the Sandy Police Department, arrested Larry Lewis Hudson, age 44, without incident on Friday, March 31, 2017 at his home in Sandy, Oregon. The federal criminal complaint charges Hudson with:

  • 2 counts-distribution of child pornography
  • 1 count-attempted online enticement of a minor
  • 1 count-transmitting obscene material to a minor
  • 2 counts-attempting to transmit obscene material to a minor

The complaint details online contacts with minor victims in Louisiana and Illinois, as well as contact with undercover officers in Texas and Arizona who were posing online as minors, in 2015 and 2016. According to the complaint, Hudson called himself “Brian Johnson,” and he used the screenname “hottgu” and e-mail addresses starting with “bigtlarry” and “hotbrian8” in his online activities.

Anyone with further information about contact between Hudson and any child should contact the FBI or their local police agency. The FBI’s Portland Division can be reached at (503) 224-4181.

Hudson will make his initial appearance before a federal magistrate judge in Portland on Monday, April 3, 2017.

A complaint is only an accusation of a crime. A defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.

Assistant United States Attorney Gary Sussman is prosecuting this case.
