Southeast Missouri man sentenced to more than 8 years for child porn

PEMISCOT COUNTY, MO — A Hayti, Missouri, man was sentenced to 100 months in federal prison on child pornography charges.

39-year-old Raymond Lindsey pleaded guilty to a count of receiving child pornography in February, and he was sentenced Wednesday, May 15.

In September 2018, law enforcement officials caught Lindsey uploading child porn images to a cloud storage account, a news release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Missouri says. A search warrant was issued, and his computers and other devices were seized. More images of child pornography, as well as videos, were found saved to those devices.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office says after Lindsey serves his prison sentence, he will have to search 20 years of supervised release. He will have to register as a sex offender for the rest of his live.
