MIAMI, FL – On Tuesday, June 14, 2022, a federal district judge in Fort Lauderdale sentenced 23-year-old Keivon McBride to 40 years in prison for recording children as young as 12 engaged in sex acts and posting the videos for sale on the internet.
According to authorities, the children ranged in age from 12 to 17. McBride had sex with some of them in the back seat of his car and at his home. He recorded the illegal sex acts with his cellular telephone and often paid the children “hush money” to keep quiet. McBride sent one child a sex toy. At McBride’s direction, the child sent him a video of herself using the toy. In addition to sharing sexually explicit videos of children on social media messenger applications, McBride labeled some of the videos with QR codes and posted them for sale online.
In March, McBride pled guilty to producing and distributing child pornography. Juan Antonio Gonzalez, United States Attorney for the Southern District of Florida, and George L. Piro Special Agent in Charge, FBI Miami announced the sentence that U.S. District Judge Rodolfo A. Ruiz, II imposed yesterday.
FBI Miami investigated the case, with assistance from the Broward Sheriff’s Office and the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force. Assistant U.S. Attorney Jodi L. Anton prosecuted this case.
