A Henderson man was sentenced Wednesday to 14 years in prison followed by lifetime supervised release for receipt of child pornography, according to Department of Justice.
           
After a three-day jury trial, on April 27, a jury found Andrew John Gibson, 28, guilty of one count of receipt of child pornography.

According to the indictment and other court documents, from about June 19, 2013 to about Nov. 21, 2013, Gibson used the Ares P2P network to access and download child pornography. During an interview with law enforcement, Gibson admitted to downloading child pornography. After forensic examinations of Gibson’s computers, law enforcement deemed 307 images and 201 videos were child pornography.

The case was investigated by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Homeland Security Investigations and the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department.

This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice.
