Local Man Guilty of Child Porn Charges
Six and a half years in federal prison for a local man convicted for collecting and distributing child pornography over the Internet. The defense attorney for 55-year old Allen Francis Labbe of Abingdon sought the minimum sentence based on his client’s stellar military career from years ago and the fact that he never molested a child. Labbe pleaded guilty to a single felony count of distribution of child pornography as part of an agreement for prosecutors to drop a second distribution charge. U.S. District Court Judge James P. Jones claims that Labbe’s desire for the illicit material fuels a business that preys on children. A statewide task force noticed his local Internet address was receiving snippets of digital signatures already connected to illegal porn. In this case, the markers were recognized by Southern Virginia Internet Crimes against Children who work with the Washington County Sheriff’s Office. Local deputies armed with a search warrant turned up the computer containing the child porn. The Washington County Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office originally picked up the case and charged Labbe with 100 counts of possession of child pornography. But county prosecutors dropped the case earlier this year and sent it to federal prosecutors. (bg)
