Orlando, Florida – A judge sentenced George Poulo (27, Orlando) to 170 years in federal prison for “using a minor to produce sexually explicit conduct and distributing child pornography.” Poulo was also ordered to serve a lifetime term of supervised release and register as a sex offender. Poulo had been found guilty following a bench trial on September 30, 2020.
According to evidence presented at trial, Poulo interacted with undercover law enforcement officers while on the group chat “breeding no age limits” on the Kik social media app. On Kik, Poulo discussed sexually abusing a 5-year-old girl whom he knew and also discussed a desire to have sex with other children. During these chats, Poulo sent the undercover officers five photographs of the minor watching him masturbate. Later, Poulo also sent the law enforcement officers a video of an adult male sexually abusing a young child.
At sentencing, the court found that Poulo had engaged in a pattern of sexual abuse involving the minor child from the summer of 2019 until February 2020, when the FBI executed a search warrant at his home.
“No amount of prison time can erase what this monster did to a young, innocent child.”, said Special Agent in Charge of the FBI Tampa Division Michael McPherson. “The 170-year prison sentence handed down in this case proves the seriousness of law enforcement’s commitment and conviction to finding these predators and removing them from society so they can’t hurt another child again.”
This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, with assistance from the Winnebago County (Wisconsin) Sheriff’s Office. It was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Shawn P. Napier.
