Clinton Man Sentenced to 120 Months

Jackson, Miss.

Christopher Allen Morace, 31, of Clinton, Miss., was sentenced in U. S. District Court Friday to 120 months in federal prison. He will be on supervised release for the rest of his life after he serves his prison time, according to U S. Attorney Gregory K. Davis.

Morace was previously convicted of possession of child pornography in North Carolina and sentenced to one year in prison there.

“Child pornographers often go to great lengths in an attempt to conceal their criminal actions,” said HSI New Orleans Special Agent in Charge Raymond R. Parmer, Jr. "This case shows that despite those attempts to hide, HSI investigators are routinely able to identify and seek prosecution of these dangerous individuals to make our communities a safer place for law-abiding citizens everywhere.”

Parmer oversees a five-state region including Mississippi , Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana, and Tennessee.
