MONTGOMERY, AL—U.S. Attorney George L. Beck, Jr., announced today that Kevin Darcy Golden, age 45, of Auburn, Alabama, was sentenced yesterday to 35 years in federal prison for producing child pornography. If Golden is released from prison, he will be on supervised release for the remainder of his life.
Between at least April and December 2011, Golden produced numerous videos of female children engaging in sexually explicit conduct. On some occasions, Golden secretly filmed the children removing their clothing while at his residence, and on other occasions Golden filmed himself engaging in sexually explicit conduct with the children while they were unconscious.
“Performing sexual acts on children is one of the most despicable things a person can do,” stated U.S. Attorney Beck. “We will not tolerate it and will work feverishly to stop this horrific conduct.”
“Cases related to the exploitation of children are of the most important investigations we shoulder in the FBI,” stated Steve Richardson, FBI Special Agent in Charge, Mobile Field Division. “Our ability to investigate and prosecute these activities is enhanced when we work with our local and federal partners.”
“We appreciate the hard work of the U.S. Attorney’s Office and the FBI in helping us make our community a safer place by bringing those to justice that would exploit our children,” stated Auburn Police Chief Tommy Dawson. “This case is another example of what can be accomplished by law enforcement working together.”
