BREAKING NEWS

Fairbanks, AK couple sentenced for producing and distributing child pornography
February 05, 2018



Chronicle staff

(FAIRBANKS, AK.) – A Fairbanks couple was sentenced last Friday in federal court for producing and distributing child pornography.

The announcement was made by U.S. Attorney Bryan Schroder of Alaska in a statement issued by his office.

Christopher Duane Davis, 32, of Fairbanks, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Ralph R. Beistline to serve 35 years in prison, followed by a lifetime term of supervised release.

Charity Noel Germain, 27, of Fairbanks, was previously sentenced on Dec. 15 of last year to serve 22 years in prison, followed by a lifetime term of supervised release.

Davis previously pleaded guilty on Nov. 3, 2017, to production and distribution of child pornography. Germain previously pleaded guilty on April 27, 2017, to conspiracy to produce child pornography.

According to court documents, beginning in June 2015, Davis and Germain conspired to produce visual depictions of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct.  In furtherance of the conspiracy, Germain and Davis gained the trust of families with small children, whom they would then babysit. 

While babysitting for the children, Davis and Germain would sexually abuse the children and record the abuse.  Davis would then share the images and videos with other pedophiles on the internet. 

Davis and Germain became the subject of a federal investigation after an undercover law enforcement agent working with the Australian government identified Davis’s profile on a foreign-based photo-sharing site known to host images of child pornography. 

From Nov. 23 through Dec. 16, 2016, during email communications with the agent, Davis described having access to children through his girlfriend and to engaging in sexual acts or producing sexual explicit images of these children while his girlfriend was baby-sitting them.

A search warrant on Davis’s email account revealed instances where he distributed images of child pornography to others.  Located on Davis’s computer were multiple child pornography images and videos, which Davis and Germain had produced.  The images showed Germain was present with the victims during production, posing the child, and assisting Davis with the sexual exploitation of the child.

“We have a responsibility to protect the most vulnerable in our society,” said U.S. Attorney Schroder. “The 35 year sentence issued...by Judge Beistline first and foremost will protect Alaskan children from this predator. Moreover, it sends a strong signal to the community that dedicated law enforcement officers, like the HSI agents in this case, are working countless hours to track down and prosecute child sexual offenders.”

Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) conducted the investigation leading to the successful prosecution of this case.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Kyle Reardon prosecuted the case.

This prosecution is part of the Department of Justice ongoing Project Safe Child (PSC) initiative. In May 2006, DOJ launched PSC, a nationwide initiative designed to protect children from online exploitation and abuse. Led by the United States Attorneys’ Offices, PSC combines federal, state, and local resources to better locate, apprehend, and prosecute individuals who exploit children via the internet, identify and rescue victims and to educate the public about safe Internet use, thereby reducing the risk that children might fall prey to online sexual predators.
