Montgomery, Alabama – U.S. Attorney George L. Beck, Jr., announced today that Kevin Darcy Golden, age 45, of Auburn, Alabama, was sentenced yesterday to 35 years in federal prison for making child pornography.  If Golden is released from prison, he will be on supervised release for the remainder of his life. 

Between at least April and December of 2011, Golden produced numerous videos of female children engaging in sexually explicit conduct.  On some occasions Golden secretly filmed the children removing their clothing while at his residence, and on other occasions Golden filmed himself engaging in sexually explicit conduct with the children while they were unconscious. 

"Performing sexual acts on children is one of the most despicable things a person can do," stated U.S. Attorney Beck.  "We will not tolerate it and will work feverishly to stop this horrific conduct."

"Cases related to the exploitation of children are of the most important investigations we shoulder in the FBI, stated Steve Richardson, FBI Special Agent in Charge, Mobile Field Division. "Our ability to investigate and prosecute these activities is enhanced when we work with our local and federal partners." 

"We appreciate the hard work of the US Attorney's office and the FBI in helping us make our community a safer place by bringing those to justice that would exploit our children," stated Auburn Police Chief Tommy Dawson.  "This case is another example of what can be accomplished by law enforcement working together."

This case is being investigated by the Opelika field office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Auburn (Alabama) Police Department.  The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Jared H. Morris and Nathan D. Stump.

 

This case is being brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse. Led by the United States Attorneys' Offices and the Criminal Division's Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section, Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state, and local resources to locate, apprehend, and prosecute individuals who sexually exploit children, and to identify and rescue victims.  For more information about Project Safe Childhood, please visit http://www.justice.gov/psc/.  For more information about internet safety education, please visit http://www.justice.gov/psc/ and click on the tab "Resources."
