Man facing hundreds of child pornography charges
BATON ROUGE- A man is facing over 900 counts of pornography involving juveniles after hundreds of images were found on his computer.
On November 29, detectives began conducting an online investigation on a file sharing network for offenders sharing child pornography. During the investigation, authorities found the IP address for an account that belonged to 51-year-old Steven Everhardt.
Authorities downloaded 399 files from the account. At least 30 of the files were images or videos depicting young female children engaging in sexual activities with adult men. According to the affidavit, the girls in the images appeared to be under the age of 10.
On March 23, 2018, authorities executed a federal search warrant at Everhardt's home. Several electronic devises were seized by the FBI for forensic examination, one of which was a laptop entitled "Dad-PC." The laptop was found open and running during the time of the search.
The forensic examination of the laptop was completed on March 28. Arrest records show that at least 900 images were found on the laptop depicting young girls, many of which appeared to be under the age of 4, engaging in sexual activities with adult men.
