Inmates Ran a Child Porn Network in Prison, FBI Says

At the Federal Correctional Institution-Fort Dix in New Jersey, authorities arrested three inmates for distributing SD cards loaded with child abuse pictures and videos downloaded from the darknet. The men, 52-year-old William H. Noble, 38-year-old Charles Wesley Bush, and a 31-year-old Jacob S. Good had already been serving prison sentences for previous child pornography distribution, child pornography transportation, and child pornography possession. Noble and Bush now face new counts of conspiracy to distribute child pornography and possession of child pornography on federal property. Good faces one count of intent to view child pornography on federal property and one count of possession of child pornography on federal property.

An FBI investigation into Noble, Bush, Good, and five more inmates at FCI-Fort Dix led to the trio’s arrest. Records indicated that the FBI used evidence actively gathered from undercover informants at the facility to investigate the men while they executed a plot to both access the illegal content while locked up and to sell SD cards they had stored the pictures and videos on. According to evidence gathered by the informant, Good had accessed the darknet on a rented cell phone and downloaded thousands of child abuse pictures and videos to his micro SD card.

In FCI-Fort Dix and the majority of prisons in the United States, inmates “rent” cell phones out to other inmates in their dorm or cell block. According to court documents, many of the men who rented cell phones had also purchased their own 16gb micro SD cards. Noble, Good, and Bush were among some of the many men at FCI-Fort Dix that used the SD cards to store downloaded child abuse pictures or videos. By maintaining their own SD cards or cloud storage accounts, inmates could rent a cell phone for an hour and have access to all the content they had worked so hard to collect.

During a recorded conversation with an informant, Good said that he had a SD card in his possession, that he had no intention of stopping anything related to“child pornography” once he had served his sentence. He told the informant that he was willing to sell the SD card he had saved everything to—as long as he could back it up to the cloud and access it when free. Bush and Noble committed their crimes together. With the help of other inmates in the prison, Bush and Noble “jointly” obtained and owned one or more micro SD cards that contained child abuse content.

An excerpt from the Criminal Complaint:

“On April 26, 2017, law enforcement executed the above-referenced search warrants. During a search of Good’s locker, law enforcement located and seized a scrap of paper with two addresses for Dark Web sites. […] One of the sites was no longer accessible. The other site, however, featured content categorized sub-forums containing numerous images and videos of CP, including but not limited to images and videos featuring boys, ranging from infants and toddlers to teenagers, engaged in sexual acts.”

The FBI’s investigation netted a total of eight men, including Bush, Noble, and Good. The other five men were captured for similar crimes. One, Erik M. Smith, pleaded guilty to the possession of child pornography. The remaining four, Christopher Roffler, Anthony Jeffries, Brian McKay, and Jordan Allen, are awaiting trial.

Bush and Noble conspired to “transfer” the SD card to a buyer. The buyer, in this case, happened to be the undercover informant that built the majority of the case. Bush and Noble expected payment in return for transferring the SD card to the informant. Based on their previous charges of the same nature, Bush, Noble, and Good face mandatory minimums of 15 years in prison and 10 years in prison, if convicted of the micro SD card charges.
