NICHOLSON was convicted on October 18, 2018, for production, transportation, and possession of child pornography and transporting two minors with the intent to engage in unlawful sexual activity with them.  According to the sentencing memorandum, for many years Nicholson had sexually abused both girls and fled the state of Alabama with them in 2012.  They were on the road for more than month and spent time in Florida, North Carolina, and New York, before law enforcement authorities found them in Kentucky.

“The sentence handed down today ensures that this man, who stole the innocence of two girls, and a large part of their childhoods, can no longer take advantage of them or any other vulnerable child,” Town said.  “Nicholson gave no sanctuary to these innocent girls and now has been sent away to federal prison for life where there is no sanctuary of parole.”

“A long prison sentence is well deserved for the defendant in this case,” SAC Sharp said.  “The FBI will continue to use their tools to identify those who commit these horrendous acts, and will seek justice on behalf of their victims.”

FBI investigated the case, which Assistant U.S. Attorneys J.B. Ward and Don Long prosecuted.
