TAMPA, Fl. – A Florida man who worked as a paramedic was sentenced to 70 years in prison for violently raping his 1-year-old daugher and recording it for a dark web forum.
James Lockhart, 31, pleaded guilty on March 26, 2019. Court documents say that between March 2016 and February 2018, Lockhart produced a 4-part series of the violent sex abuse of his one-year-old child. The videos were distributed on a dark-web forum, where he displayed signs with the forum name and the name he used in the forum in order to gain notoriety, federal officials said. In addition, he bragged about the abuse of another one-year-old child.
A search of Lockhart’s home revealed 43 videos and 4000 images containing child pornography that he collected. “Lockhart’s child pornography collection included infants and sadomasochistic and violent conduct,” U.S. Attorney’s office said.
“This deviant committed the most horrible atrocities imaginable to a one-year-old child,” said HSI Tampa Assistant Special Agent in Charge Michael B. Cochran. “HSI’s national and international partnerships have helped ensure that this predator will never again harm a child.”
