Former SPS Cafeteria Employee Sentenced for Child Porn

SPRINGFIELD, Mo.--A Springfield woman and former employee of the Springfield Public Schools was sentenced Wednesday to federal prison for producing and distributing child pornography over the internet.

34-year-old Carrie Allred was sentenced to 18 years in prison without parole. She pleaded guilty in March to one count of the sexual exploitation of a child for the purpose of producing child pornography, and one count of receiving and distributing child pornography.

According to court documents, Allred video-recorded her dog performing a sexual act on a four-year-old child. Investigators located a substantial amount of child pornography of prepubescent children during their forensic examination of Allred’s electronic devices. Allred also admitted that she broadcasted, via webcam, videos of herself engaged in bestiality with her dogs.

Prior to her arrest, Allred worked for five years in the kitchen at Wilson Creek Middle School. An officer with the Southwest Missouri Cybercrimes Task Force was conducting an undercover investigation on Sept. 20, 2012, and identified Allred’s computer as sharing images of child pornography over the Internet through a peer-to-peer file-sharing network.

Law enforcement officers executed a search warrant at her residence on Jan. 8, 2013, and seized a computer and two hard drives.

This case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Ami Harshad Miller.
