David Ladeau, 66, of Hyde Park was sentenced today by U.S. District Court Chief Judge F. Dennis Saylor to 10 years in prison and five years of supervised release. Ladeau was also sentenced to two years in prison for each of his two supervised release violations, which will run concurrently with the 10-year sentence.
On Feb. 18, 2022, Ladeau pleaded guilty to access with intent to view child pornography and previously, Ladeau was convicted of federal in 2010 for possession of child pornography. In 2015, Ladeau was convicted of conspiracy to possess child pornography in the Middle District of Tennessee.
While on federal supervised release for these convictions, law enforcement identified images of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct on Ladeau’s court-monitored computer. A subsequent investigation determined that in January and February 2021, Ladeau had been using the computer to access child pornography saved on a thumb drive.
