Google found child porn in his email, now St. Louis man gets 8 years in prison

{{featured_button_text}}

ST. LOUIS • A St. Louis man caught with child porn by Google was sentenced Tuesday in federal court here to 8 years and one month in prison.

Julien C. Pender, 26, of the 4300 block of Neosho Street, was found with 2,690 still images and 46 videos containing child pornography, court documents say.

The investigation began when Google spotted child porn in an email and alerted the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, which notified law enforcement, court records show.

A search of his computer equipment by police in 2014 found the images. 

Pender was originally charged in St. Louis Circuit Court in June 2016. The federal charges were filed that October.

Google uses automated systems to analyze emails and other content on its servers to identify child pornography, and reports illegal content to law enforcement.
