Man convicted of posting porn of 1-year-old daughter

plunkettA suburban Atlanta man has been convicted and sentenced to a dozen years in federal prison for sharing pornographic photos of his 1-year-old daughter with an undercover officer.

Just 12 years?!? You would think that he got off light by federal prosecutors. But then again, prisons have a way of administering their own form of savage justice on child molesters.

Corey Charles Plunkett, 27, of Marietta, Georgia, was trying to offer the pictures of his infant daughter in a sexual position to an undercover Ohio law enforcement officer who was engaged in an undercover investigation identifying subjects involved in the online victimization of children using two chat rooms known for attracting individuals with a sexual interest in children.

According to Cobb County, Georgia’s assistant district attorney, Jill Steinberg, Plunkett wrote to the Ohio officer that he had a 1-year-old daughter and asked whether a 1-year-old was too young for sexual activity. Plunkett communicated that he wanted his daughter to perform oral sex.

Shortly thereafter, Plunkett posted an image of himself, a non-pornographic image of his daughter, and later that day a pornographic image of his daughter to the undercover officer.

During the execution of a search warrant at the defendant’s home in Cobb County, Georgia, police seized Plunkett’s phone and located the image that Plunkett had sent to the undercover officer.

“The FBI has, for many years, not only investigated those who would sexually exploit children, but has also helped to educate the public and parents on how to better protect their children,” said J. Britt Johnson, special agent in charge of the FBI’s Atlanta field office. ” To see a case, such as this, where the child’s father was sexually exploiting his own child leaves many of our seasoned investigators without words.”

Plunkett was sentenced by United States District Judge Steve C. Jones to 12 years in prison to be followed by supervised release for life.  He was also ordered to pay a $100 special assessment. He will be required to register as a sex offender when he is released from prison.
