HOUSTON, Texas — A Houston, Texas, man, described by federal authorities as a serial sex offender, has been sentenced to 25 years in federal prison for operating a child pornography chat group he named the "House of 1000 Littles."
38-year-old Terence Dewayne Dixon, also known as "Devilman Crybaby," of Houston, Texas, was sentenced last week in the Northern District of Georgia after previously pleading guilty to conspiracy to advertise child pornography. He was sentenced to 25 years in federal prison, a lifetime of supervised release, ordered to pay $12,000 in restitution, and must register as a sex offender.
Dixon was previously convicted in 2001 of aggravated sexual assault of a nine-year-old child and was listed as a sex offender in Texas. He was listed as moderate risk, with lifetime registration, and had absconded from his last known address, according to Texas Department of Public Safety records.
Dixon created the House of 1000 Littles as early as November 2017, according to federal prosecutors and information presented in court. "Members of Dixon’s group discussed how they were sexually aroused by children and sent one another links to child pornography files on a daily basis until October 2018," read a statement from the U.S. Attorney's Office in the Northern District of Georgia.
"On a single day in January 2018, for example, Dixon shared 21 links containing child pornography with the group. On another date, in February 2018, he bragged that his shared link contained 5,000 videos of child pornography," states the release.
A majority of the members of Dixon's chat group lived across the United States, including in the states of California, Georgia, Illinois, Louisiana, Michigan, New York, Ohio, and Tennessee.
“Dixon disseminated horrific images of child pornography to members of his online chat group,” stated U.S. Attorney Byung J. “BJay” Pak. “He also encouraged others to share child pornography that fueled a demand for the violent exploitation of children. This lengthy prison sentence serves as some recompense for the irreparable harm he caused to so many children and their families.”
“The monsters that visited this site and found pleasure in exploiting innocent children now have one less place to sow their evil seeds and one less organizer to help them do it. Dixon’s sentencing is warning to those who revel in and peddle this filth,“ stated acting Special Agent in Charge Robert Hammer, who oversees Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) operations in Georgia and Alabama. “HSI Atlanta and its state and local partners are hunting down these criminals that look to steal the innocence of our youth.”
“For this defendant to take the images of innocent children and pass them around in order to exploit them and use them to arouse in a sexual nature is absolutely despicable. The GBI is committed to working with our partners to stop this criminal behavior and protect our young ones,” stated Vic Reynolds, Director, Georgia Bureau of Investigation.
