Bradenton Man, Adam Young Sentenced to 10 Years for Child Pornography

U.S. District Judge Virginia M. Hernandez Covington has sentenced Adam Daniel Young (27, Bradenton) to 10 years and 1 month in federal prison for using the internet to download images and videos depicting child sexual abuse. Young was also sentenced to a lifetime of supervised release and was ordered to register as a sex offender.

Young had pleaded guilty on August 21, 2018.

According to court documents, the FBI began an investigation of Young after an undercover agent downloaded child pornography from Young’s Internet Protocol (IP) address. Law enforcement officers executed a search warrant at Young’s home and found more than 3,500 images and 75 videos depicting child sexual abuse on Young’s laptop computer.


This case was investigated by the FBI and the Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office. It was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Jennifer L. Peresie.

This is another case brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse. Led by United States Attorneys’ Offices and the Criminal Division’s Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section, Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state, and local resources to locate, apprehend, and prosecute individuals who sexually exploit children, and to identify and rescue victims.
