Charlotte man sentenced to 8+ years on child pornography charges

- A Charlotte man was sentenced Friday to 97 months in prison on child pornography charges, according to The U.S. Attorney for the Western District of North Carolina.

Brandon Daniel Enright, 29, of Charlotte, was charged with possession of child pornography. In addition to serving 97 months, Enright must also serve ten years of supervised release, and register as a sex offender.

According to court documents, on or about October 20, 2013, Enright shared child pornography online with an undercover agent using a peer-2-peer network.  

During a subsequent search of Enright’s home in Charlotte, law enforcement seized a computer and two external  hard drives. Forensic analysis of those devices revealed that Enright possessed 251 videos of child pornography, depicting prepubescent minors engaging in sexual acts.

Enright pleaded guilty in September 2015 to one count of possession of child pornography. 

He's currently in custody and will be transferred to the custody of the Federal Bureau of Prisons upon designation of a federal facility. All federal sentences are served without the possibility of parole.
