Matthews Man Sentenced For Child Porn

Department Of Justice
Press Release

In another case brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse, a 51-year-old Matthews man, Brian Parks Moore, was sentenced Tuesday (Dec. 22nd) to 188 months in prison for transportation of child pornography. US District Court Judge Robt. Conrad, Jr., also ordered Moore to serve 30 years of supervised probation and to register as a sex offender.

Moore was indicted in November 2018 after he told law enforcement that he had accessed child pornography to incriminate someone else, but then began viewing it himself. Court records show that Moore possessed 1,769 images and videos depicting the sexual abuse of children.

He was released on bond before his trial on the condition that he only use electronic devices approved by the US Probation Office, but on March 13, 2019, a probation officer made an unannounced visit to Moore’s home and located an unauthorized tablet. According to court records, the tablet’s web history showed Moore had attempted to access child pornography and child erotica. His bond was revoked and he was taken back into custody.

Moore pleaded guilty to transportation of child pornography.
