Child porn collector pleads guilty to possessing more than 5 million illicit images

Department of Homeland Security’s U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) announced that on October 31, 2014, Terry Lee Clark, 48, of Corpus Christi, Texas, pleaded guilty to possessing more than five million images of child pornography on his computer.

This investigation was conducted by the Corpus Christi Police Department-Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, with assistance from ICE and HSI. Authorities received an anonymous tip in July 2014. They visited Clark’s home at the same time he was apparently perusing some of the illicit imagery. Clark gave permission to law enforcement to search his residence. Upon entering the house, authorities discovered a computer in Clark’s bedroom, with child pornography displayed in plain view on the screen of his computer.
