Jarod Barry: Nine years for child porn
A former Marine will get nine years in a federal prison for possession of a particularly gruesome genre of child porn.

Jarod Barry, 30, who left the Marines in January with an "other than honorable" discharge, was sentenced after entering a guilty plea last June. He had been a sergeant.

Investigators found him trading child-porn images and video on the web, and when they searched his house in Spring they found "a desktop computer with approximately 258 videos containing child pornography," the U.S. Attorney's Office says.

The images, the USAO says, "included children under 12 being sexually violated by adults, children being raped, strangled while being violated and bondage involving children."

In this brief item from USMilitary.com, Barry talks about working with Iraqi soldiers in Haditha City as part of the 3rd Battalion of the 23rd Marines.

Mdhodina, thank you for trying to explain your personal knowledge of this young man and the circumstances of the case.  I sense that many of the death wish "commenters" are outraged by kiddie porn and have let emotions dictate their comments.  I get it!  I also oppose such reprehensible videos.  However, let's not forget that Jarod Barry is someone's son, grandson, brother, nephew, uncle - a human being.  He served his country faithfully for 10 years and did 9 tours overseas.  While what was found on his computer was disgusting, he always maintained his innocence.  Who knows the truth? He believed that his roommates did this but couldn't prove it. Since he faced a possible sentence of 25 years to life, he plead out for a 9 year sentence.  Texas has some of the stiffest penalties in the country for this kind of offense. This man's life will forever be scarred.  He has lost his military career, will never get security clearance again and will be a registered sex offender for the rest of his life, all for files found on his computer.  He hasn't seen family members in 2 years and won't for at least 6 more. Please try to show some compassion, not just for the child victims, but for the sake of the family of this young man...

The reason they don't give them what they diserve is because he worked for the government so they r going easy on him like they always do with people they know or worked for them.

The Bright side has to be that at least we have one less creep/sick person to worry about.  And, we can only hope that while he's in prison the inmates and security guards will make him regret ever having child porn.

There is more than one guilty party here. Who made the child porn? Why don't we ever hear about who kidnappened the victims, filmed the, stored the crimes on hard drives and servers and distributed the images and videos willing viewers.

It just breaks my heart to hear about this kind of thing, especially when I see the photo is shown with him in uniform. HP, please write a positive article about a Marine to counteract this. It may not get as many "hits", but it will get the the bad taste of my mouth.

This is amazing. Another story on this site tells about a 32 yo female teacher who molested, actually put her hands on and had sex with, a 13 yo boy and everyone says, ata boy, great learning experience, wish I had that when I was in high school, yet this guy just looked at videos, not that I dont' thing it's any less despicable, and everyone screams death penalty. Kudos for her and a needle for him?

I wonder, is this stuff getting more common or has it always been like this and we just have more access to news now?  To me it looks like its getting worse, its like an epidemic, people get the pedo-bug. But that makes little sense, so I`m guessing we just have more news now. My God thats depressing, we`re such a crazy species.

Oh and there are evaluations done before these guys go in the service mental and physical and so no they dont let the crazies into the service...this guy just decide one day to look up something that started lingering in his mind...so to assume they let anyone in the military makes you look dumb...there are very few guys who do this in the service compared to all the millitary men we have....and compare the numbers..these perves dont represent america or our military....we their found out their kicked out....these perves represent their last names not our military

to carl  the marine didnt commit child abuse  he downloaded videos on the computer so why would be killed for other peoples crimes.  he got a very big sentence for looking at the stuff.  there have been people caught looking at the same stuff and they are on the street with probation. it is very distasteful and disturbing but death penalty  give me a break.  people that rape women and kids do less time.

I new this man personally for 10 years he was a normal guy. After 9 deployments countless battles and wounds he was no longer right in the head I have two kids and he always treated them with respect. The goverment kept him in jail for year without bond. Their case was week because he had multiple roomates and they couldnt prove it was him but they were already comitted. unfortounitly he met his limit and pleaded out. So much for the right to a speedy trial. This manprotcted all of you and deserved better. F all of you you have no idea what are men and women go through. Semper fi. One more thing I love the usmc best years of my life. But they hung this marine out to dry you notice they didn't covict till 9 months after the charge and they didn't have to offer representation

Trust me, the police and Interpol know. Since some of their operations are undercover, they can't publicize who they're going after. And when they bust someone, you read about it. Example: this article!

Anyone who thinks that looking at images of children being raped isn't actually doing something wrong, is either totally deluded or a moron.  There's a reason why it's defined as a criminal offence.  Every time someone looks at the photo or watches the video, the child is being abused again.  If it was your 4 year old whose rape was filmed, would you seriously think that anyone downloading it wasn't doing anything wrong because they weren't the original rapist?  They were just 'looking'?  Jesus, grow some empathy.

You just don't want to get it. It is a crime in the US to download, possess, and distribute child porn. Why? Because kids are brutilized and scarred for life you moron! Anyone who likes watching kids being strangled while molested is a sick fuck.

 What he did was wrong and made him a participant in the abuse of these children.  He did cause harm, and he did do something illegal, and he did do something wrong.  I have to say I hope you don't spend time with any children.

what realy sucks is that there was a inocent happy go lucky boy that inlisted straight outa high school and went straight to afgahn and iraq. he fought for his country for 10 years and was involved in toIED exsplosion. when he came home he was the same. he looked at some crazy shit on the computer and he is now fucked for life. to all you asshole that think he should have got the death penalty. he is already the walking dead and marked for life.

@laura throwing these pedifiles in general population is giving them death..prisoners dont tolerate child abusers on any level. Read history...thats why people like susan smith are seperated from the general populazation...our government likes to protect the abusers thats why these people are confined alone or with abusers of the like...your average joe criminal being locked up for petty crimes and even your hard criminals as in murderers dont like child molesters or beaters..they may not make it out here but in there they clean up where things need to be...look at jeffery dahmer he was protected but it took a second for someone to get to him and when they did they took him out the same way he took others out...plenty of prisoners who do this get raped daily some are found dead with plungers in their rear ends....i dont think we should go around killing each other but theres no help for child molesters if theyve acted on it or not.....its sick and its not possible to keep this world safe for our kids with monsters like that in their world.....and for the idiot.guy saying he didnt act on it....your as sick as he is....go committ yourself you need help...these are little kids...and to watch a act of violence in a sexual situation or any other should let you know your messed up and to basicaly condone someones actions by saying he didnt act on it means your sick to. Go to jail and see how many inmates become your new friend......and kim my ex is military was with.him for 14 yrs and over them years and even now because my kids are military dependants ive ran into and interacted with thousands and thousands of soldiers. I watched their kids when there wives left them their houses when their parents and friends died and ive never met a crazy one. And these guys and gals were airforce marines navys army active duty anf reservist..i think you oughtta not be judging our soldiers because of a few bad apples...im not defending mr perv obviously ive made my feelings on him clear...but ill.go to hell before i shut my mouth and let someone who doesnt.know shit about our soldiers run her mouth and judge them. If ya wanna know about our service men pretty yourself up and date one...youll.learn a new way of thinking...even been divorced for six yrs and having five kids with my ex hes a great guy and i respect him and everyone who fights beside him...you need to educate yourself on what our soldiers do here and abroad and all the good they do..what you hear about are those bad apples you need to..you dont here about the good they do the volunteering they do and what they sacrafice for you to be able to pop off with the stupid shit.you do......

Child porn isn't a victimless crime, those are REAL CHILDREN being RAPED. Monsters like this sick fuck deserve to be skinned alive.

Sirkissa

Have you ever stopped to think that some day most of those children are going to learn that adults hurt them and can't be trusted? How do you think they'll feel knowing someone is watching their pain and horror in a video just to get their rocks off and distributing it for others to see? How many of these kids will end up on drugs or alcohol to cope or just kill themselves? If you can't see or refuse to see the trauma inflicted on innocent minds while they are forming, than there is no hope for you. Maybe you think his sentence isn't fair, but to me it's one more sick pedo off the streets.

 He did commit child abuse.  The fact that rapists don't get enough time is irrelevant to whether or not execution of this man would be justice or would protect society.

Tell me executing him would not protect society - tell me that while being aware these crimes generally escalate.  Shile we caught him before he (can be proven to have) actually laid his hands on a child that doesn't make him someone who will ever be safe to have in society.

Antichildrapers

Ohh ok- then give him life or a steeper sentence cause any loser who is viewing that type of sick shit IS going ot act on it sooner or later and even if by small chance he doesn't he is creating demand for it.  I am equally horrified by anyone who defends anything having to do with abusing children.... truly scary. 8 years it not a big sentence for viewing (many!!!!) videos of children being tortured and raped!!!!!! my god are you really that sick?

Chelsea Scott

Really? ANY asshole that watches child rape - and all child porn is child rape - is just as guilty as the rapist themselves. Normal people don't seek out child rape videos on the internet to build a stash and keep for personal viewing. Somebody who is in to child rape would. All forms of rapists deserve the death penalty. You never come back from that, ever. And would you want one of your children hanging around the house of somebody that watches child rape videos in their spare time? If they don't actually rape the children but just watch it? Fuck no. Even if a video watching pedo hasn't raped a child yet, it's only a matter of time.

Laura_RT

Personally I believe the people who are doing less time that you're talking about SHOULD get the death penalty. And child porn is a stepping stone to becoming one of those monsters. Not to mention, it's a simple case of supply and demand. Without the demand, there would be no supply...

I served in the same platoon with him. While I never thought he was in to child porn, he was certainly one strange individual. And many of his combat stories were bull shit. He would come up with the most outrageous and impossible stuff. He once attempted to convince us that he was the sole survivor of 8 different C-130 crashes. He was a shit head. No one liked him, he didn't know how to do his job, and he always put himself before his Marines.

Well you're right about one thing, his life is ruined.  Maybe not quite as ruined as the 258 kids whose torture and rape is now immortalised on film for unlimited paedophile consumption, but ruined nonetheless.  By the way, you can't 'accidentally' fall over this kind of stuff online, you have to go out actively looking for it.  And he wasn't just looking at it, he was making and distributing it (i.e. downloading and swapping).

I personally served with this sick fucker. I'll tell you what, he was the biggest shitbag in our battalion. It doesn't surprise me to here this about him. I hope he gets put in general populationand gets ass raped. He might as well have been the one raping all those kids. I hope he dies with a plunger up his ass. If you think this has anything to do with him being in the Marines you are dead wrong. That title has already been stripped from him.

Yeah you`re right, I`ve been to prison and the bottom of the barrel behind bars is pedophiles and rapists. They get the shit kicked out of them every time someone gets a chance. I saw a guy get an extra 6 months added to his allready lengthy sentence, for beating up one of these sickos, and he took that 6 months with a big smile, totally worth it he said  :)

You are absolutely right, but some military people that have been in war zones 5 or more times and witnessed unspeakable things might be so psychologically damaged that they start to drink heavily, drug and do things they would never have done. I know there are many that can go to war zones and watch their buddies get blown up, kill, interrogate etc. and come back whole and unchanged but their are some that come back psychologically damaged. Again, I make no excuses for what he did but every case is not the same. You should go to a VA hospital/psychiatric and see what this war has done to these young guys. Why don't you google murders committed by Marines, Army people. I guess you are one of those people that believe that army guy who killed all the women and children should be put to death not for a minute considering he is psychologically damaged. Not everyone over there goes out and kills women and children but there are those that crack. So the answer is the death penality for him because he served this country and fought for us but now he is damaged so no use to us, kill him? You can't just take what you read in the paper as fact, there is always more to the story. Sensationalism sells, that's why there are so many prosperous rag mags.

What???? Please re-read, I explained the definition of distribution by federal law. IF YOU DOWNLOAD PORN IT CAN BE PULLED FROM YOUR COMPUTER IF SOMEONE ELSE IS LOOKING FOR THAT SAME TITLE. I never said if you have limewire you automatically get any kind of porn to your computer. The explanation was to let people know that he didn't produce or share this intentionally. If it was in his computer and someone else was seeking the title it was pulled from his computer without his knowledge. Obviously he shouldn't have had it there to begin with. He got caught by the reverse ip address that federal marshalls do on a monthly basis in Texas. They put in a title and send it out into cyber world and see what IP address come back with that title. This is not going after the makers (producers) it's going after the viewers.  I have worked with forensic computer analysts that make their cases for the government so i do have a good understanding of how limewire works. There was NEVER any question about the legality of downloading child pornography. What I did say is that you should always guard your computer and keep a password on it bc you are responsible for whatever gets downloaded on it. If you have a houseguest and they use your computer under your ip address and download this garbage it is next to impossible to prove you didn't do it.

Sirkissa
Sirkissa

If your explantion is correct, which I doubt, as I had Limewire and never downloaded anything pornographic, it is still AGAINST THE LAW to own, make or distribute child pornography! Get it now? Understand? And there ARE people after the makers and distributors, how else do you think this guy got caught? People dedidcated to fighting pedophiles are not stupid. We follow procedures and are trained.

Psych40

If you were privy to the court records you would know that he NEVER deliberately shared those videos. Limewire is a peer to peer download that allows you to download music and videos and allows others who search for that same title to pull it from your computer. According to federal law this is called distribution. I knew this young man prior to enlisting and can tell you when he came home from Afghanastan(1st to go after 911) he was not the same. Yes, not all Marines/military suffer serious psychological problems when serving a warzone but many do. Perfect example is the army sargeant who killed all those women and children. Easy for those sitting home watching the news to jump on the bandwagon and crucify someone based on what is being written in the news. What's written in the news or telecasted doesn't make it fact. If you search for a Today segment done on anxiety,depression and other psychiatric diagnosis in the military, you will see a medic who would not be shown on tv stating he was delivered bags of antianxiety, antidepressants and other such drugs daily. He said some of these guys are taking a cocktail of drugs to be able to get through their tours. You can do 100 great things and do 1 stupid thing and all the good is tossed. GMAN5000 I wonder in what capacity you served with this guy. You seem to have a lot of rage towards him and it doesn't seem to be coming from what he is serving time for. Was he your superior? What did he do to make him so sick and that you know first hand that serving in the military 5 tours had nothing to do with his behavior. Have you ever heard of PTSD? Many suffer from it and aren't aware they have it. They drink, drug and a whole host of risky behaviors that if treated they wouldn't have done. The majority of guys coming back are not being given the psychological care they need. Unless you are missing limbs or have bullet holes you're good to go. I work closely with men trying to get Va benefits.  I make no excuses for his actions just trying to point out that everything isn't always black and white. If you are accused of this it doesn't matter if you did it or not it's your computer and you're responsible for it. If you try and go to trial and say" I didn't do this" you most certainly will serve even more time. So, plea bargaining is the lesser of 2 evils if you don't want to spend the rest of your life in jail. So you say I wouldn't admit guilt if I didn't do it, well you don't know unless you're faced with it and your lawyer tells you theres no way a jury will believe you bc of how people feel about this issue(rightfullly so). There is no way a jury would look at this guy and not automatically convict him. You all have on  here. In fact you all want him put to death. Not all people who are curious and look at this digusting crap will act on it just as not all people that watch law and order svu will go out and rape and kill. Having a psychology back round I understand the anger you all feel but wishing he get murdered with a plunger sounds almost as sick to me as the people you speak of. The government is trying to take away the demand for this so the producers will have no audience. Sad that they are so concentrated on the viewers and not searching out the rapists and videographers. "They" should be put to death. Are you aware of how many teens are going to prison for this? Their lives ruined for stupid curiosity. Unfortunately, the sickos that make this stuff will continue to do so bc they are sick and they can get away with it. Also, if you research this you will find that if you have money you serve less time or no time. If the government really wants to make a statement the sentence should be the same for EVERYONE.

"i think someone should fix the internet so it isnt posible to even see this kind of shit. the government has all these site addresses but leave them on the net"

You are almost as uninformed about how the internet works as a person can get.

Which government are you talking about? The omnipresent international one that controls technology? Or maybe we should just arrest those websites when they try to penetrate American borders?

Please, for the love of god, at least read a wikipedia article about it.
