An Ohio man, arrested in 2011 at an Alexandria hotel, pleaded guilty Jan. 23 in federal court to  possession of child pornography.
According to a news release from U.S. Attorney Stephanie A. Finley, 40-year-old Dwayne Dunlavy, of Ravenna, Ohio, was arrested in December 2011.
"According to evidence presented at the guilty plea, investigators began looking for a suspect who was making child pornography available on file sharing networks. One individual was found to be at an Alexandria hotel using the hotel’s Wi-Fi network to distribute child pornography. On March 5, 2012, Dunlavy was discovered in the hotel room. Law enforcement personnel searched his laptop and found images of child pornography," a release from Finley states.
Finley said Dunlavy faces 10 years in prison, a $250,000 fine, forfeiture, and a lifetime of supervised release. He will also be required to register as a sex offender. A sentencing date of April 25, 2014 was set.
Homeland Security Investigations, Louisiana State Police, and the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force in the Mississippi Attorney General’s Office conducted the investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Earl M. Campbell is prosecuting the case.
