    Thumbs up Father Webcasts Himself Molesting Daughter, 7 Sentenced

    Father Webcasts Himself Molesting Daughter, 7
    (CBS) SANTA ANA A La Habra man who recorded himself molesting his daughter when she was between 4 and 7 years old and broadcast the images over the Internet was sentenced Monday to 25 years in federal prison, a federal prosecutor said.

    Jed Philip Larson Sr., 45, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Cormac Carney, but still faces trial on Jan. 26 in state court on molestation charges, Assistant U.S. Attorney Richard Lee said.

    Larson pleaded guilty on May 22 to one federal count of producing child pornography, Lee said.

    Images of the attacks were first discovered by special agents with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement in Killeen, Texas, while they were examining a computer seized from Wesley Whitcomb, Lee said.

    Whitcomb and Larson met in an Internet chat room, where Larson was Webcasting images of a molestation of his daughter, the prosecutor said. Agents recovered many images and movie files of Larson's daughter on Whitcomb's computer, he said.

    Independently, ICE agents in Indiana found a computer belonging to another man, Craig Macpherson, that contained thousands of still images and movie files of Larson's daughter being sexually abused, molested and exploited, Lee said.

    ICE later identified, located and searched Larson's home on Sept. 8, 2005, arresting him and taking his daughter out of the home, Lee said.

    "This sentence is fully merited by defendant's criminal actions, in which he took advantage of his position of power over his daughter to horribly abuse her," Acting U.S. Attorney George S. Cardona said.

    "No sentence can make up for the harm this man has caused his own daughter, but the lengthy sentence imposed Monday will at least ensure that this defendant will never again sexually victimize his daughter or anyone else's child," Cardona said.

    I agree Cyn...I'm just thankful that they handed down a long sentence verses a lot of cases where they get out in a couple years. I can't imagine what that poor angel went thru at the hands of her abuser...and how many other sickos fed their sick, twisted fantasies....at least they stopped a couple of perverts for a while!
