A 66-year-old Baltimore man is facing 35 years in prison for his role is sexually exploiting children in the Philippines.

A judge sentenced 66-year-old Louis Bradley to 35 years, followed by a lifetime of supervised release for production of child pornography. This is not Bradley’s first conviction, he was already a registered sex offender with four convictions dating back to the late 80s.

Court records show between 2014 and 2016 Bradley paid numerous women in the Philippines to take sexually explicit photos of prebuscent girls and send them to him on social media. He also paid the women to send videos of their genitals using video streaming programs.

Bradley used social media to “friend” hundreds of women in the Philippines who had young children or access to young children. He paid the women in exchange for photos of the children in their care.  

Bradley admitted that he sent 120 payments to at least 17 payees in the Philippines, totaling $8,291.  At least six of the recipients sent Bradley images or videos of children engaged in sexually explicit conduct in exchange for the payments. 

As part of his plea agreement, Bradley must continue to register as a sex offender under the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act.
