Another disgusting pedophile is now going to prison for 82 months (not long enough) after police say they found a trove of Child Pornography in his possession.
36 year old Scott Michael Linnell, of Greer, was sentenced in Greenville on charges of possession of child pornography, according to United States Attorney for the District of South Carolina Beth Drake.
Prosecutors stated at the disgusting pedophile’s change of plea hearing earlier this week that on March 10th of 2015, an undercover law enforcement officer signed into an covert Kik user account in order to conduct and infiltrate a child exploitation ring which law enforcement believed was being managed through the Kik Messenger application.
During the process of the investigation prosecutors said that the undercover agent documented that a user going by “phx_medic” had posted sexually explicit material involving tiny children in the Kik Messenger chat room called “#lolitalovers."
In a second unrelated undercover investigation, agents say that an individual at the same IP address was found to be trading child pornography and engaging in sexually explicit chats on a web forum used by individuals interested in sexual contact with children, which made him an instant target for justice.
The IP address then was then traced by federal investigators and a search warrant was executed on Linnell's home May 27th of 2015, prosecutors said.
Upon a detailed forensic examination of multiple computers and other electronic devices seized from Linnel’s home law enforcement uncovered a whopping 8,906 images of disgusting child pornography.
"Of these images, 773 were of infants and toddlers. Ninety of these images were sadistic, masochistic, or violent," Drake said in a statement.
United States District Judge Bruce Howe Hendricks, after hearing all of the evidence presented, then sentenced Linnell to 82 months in the South Carolina Bureau of Prisons and ordered that he be under lifetime supervision, according to the courts.
If we're lucky however, an inmate who's serving life and wants to redeem himself will take care of the justice that wasn't served but this short sentence.
All pedophiles deserve execution. There is no rehabilitation for pedophiles. Period.
