Longview Sex Offender, Charles Orange Sentenced to Federal Prison for Child Pornography Violations Following International Investigation
Offender Brought to Justice by Joint Operation of Homeland Security Investigations, INTERPOL, Thailand Department of Special Investigations, and Australian Federal Police
TYLER, TS (STL.News) A Longview, Texas sex offender who was identified as part of a joint international investigation has been sentenced to federal prison for child pornography violations in the Eastern District of Texas, announced Acting U.S. Attorney Nicholas J. Ganjei today.
Charles Orange, 55, was convicted by a jury on Sep. 18, 2020, of possession of child pornography and was sentenced to 240 months in federal prison by U.S. District Judge Robert W. Schroeder III on March 4, 2021. Following Orange’s release from federal prison, he will be placed on a life term of supervised release.
“There is no place for Charles Orange in lawful society,” said Acting U.S. Attorney Nicholas J. Ganjei. “He is unapologetic, unrepentant, and unremorseful. Nothing short of incarceration will stop him from engaging in the sexual exploitation of children. The Court’s sentence sends a clear message to Charles Orange and to other likeminded predators – the public has the right to be protected.
