Bennie E. Richardson IV liked to relax.
Bennie E. Richardson IV, a 40-year-old Pasadena man, has been sentenced to 12 years in federal prison for possessing and distributing child pornography.

Looking at the porn was a form of relaxation, he told cops when he was arrested.

Richardson was arrested in 2008 and was found guilty last month, but more details about his case came today from the U.S. Attorney's Office. As is often the case, they're repulsive, so make sure you want to read ahead.

Cops found more than 600 images and 400 videos on Richardson's computers, and in fact found him downloading child porn when they came to get him.

He told them "he was very knowledgeable about computers and that he was a computer technician," the USAO said. "He claimed he was downloading and watching the child pornography because it relaxed him."

Lord.

This is what "relaxed" Richardson:

The investigator downloaded one of the videos and discovered images identified as being part of a known series, as well as minor children engaging in oral, anal and vaginal sex with an adult male. One section of the video contained a young female (approximately 8-10 years of age) on her knees being forced to perform oral sex on an adult male while blindfolded with her arms and legs bound with bindings tied around her neck and attached to her ankles.

Richardson also freely shared 144 such videos with other people in need of relaxation.

how can these monsters get away with this? you cannot rehabilitate this behavior and how can 12 years seem appropriate? it makes me sick to think how many child molestors and rapists are released when there crimes carry the weight of murder

You would think someone who dealt with that kind of sensitive data would have been smart enough to mask his real IP address. real-privacy.no.tc

This is so disturbing, and I notice that every frikkin time one of these monsters gets busted they have so much of it, thousands of pics and movies. Saw one in the paper the other day, over 20,000 pics and over 800 movies!!!  Who makes all this??  :(  Is this child predator thing much, much worse and widespread then we belive?  The amount of material being made is staggering and disturbing.

No doubt the 144 recipients will miss Richardson while they continue relaxing AFTER dumping  their hard drives. (the cops now have their emails,too  BTW, if you think about it.)

I wonder if by "relaxing" he meant to say that it kept him from kidnapping and molesting children himself.

You know what relaxes me? Reading a good book... Maybe a cup of coffee in the back yard on Saturday morning when the weather is nice... playing hooky from work on a Wednesday and going to the ice house for a cold beer in the afternoon...Bong hits and cartoons...

Remember, there are options, people.

Another disgusting LOSER!  What the hell do we have to do to get these degenerates out of the gene pool???  I only hope these children are found and taken care of responsibly.  These poor kids.  It's so unfair to them.  Please Lord, watch over these angels.

Apparently, big people porn just wasn't relaxing enough...on the up side, his cell mate, Tiny, will now be very relaxed.

Lock him up and throw away the key. On the bright side, if there is one, he at least was only viewing child porn, not making his own. Though, that may have been the next step for him. There is no known treatment for these guys, the vast majority re-offend after release, if I recall the stats correctly.  Even castration does not remove the mental desire, only the physical response. He should be locked away until he's clearly  no danger to anyone due to old age and or some debilitating condition.

We can only hope that his fellow inmates subject him to similar treatment behind bars.

I love the fact that child predators are considered the scum of the earth...even by fellow inmates. Enjoy your "relaxing" stay in the "slammer!"

I agree Flah!   The evidence appears to be abundant--never ending!

What I don't get is why with more than 600 images and 400 videos on Richardson's computers, did he only get 12 years?

Sad, but you might be onto something there.

Nice one, kat, but federal prison??? The country club of incarceration, amongst the Jeff Skillings? "Tiny" in a state prison would probably be more relaxed more often and much more viciously and on a grander scale....
