Haywood County Man Convicted of Child Porn

Gabriel Allen Goss, 39, was sentenced to 28 years in prison and a lifetime of supervised release for production of child pornography charges.  Judge Reidinger also ordered Goss to register as a sex offender after he is released from prison.

John Eisert, Acting Special Agent in Charge of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) in the Carolinas and Sheriff Greg Christopher of the Haywood County Sheriff’s Office join U.S. Attorney Murray in making today’s announcement.

According to filed court documents and today’s sentencing hearing, on March 18, 2017, Goss, then a resident of Haywood County, used a cellular phone to produce at least three child pornography videos of a prepubescent minor female.  Court records show that on November 16, 2017, Goss engaged in a series of internet emails with another individual for the purpose of trading child pornography files.  In one email to the other individual, Goss attached a video file of the child pornography Goss had produced depicting the minor victim.

Goss is currently in federal custody and will be transferred to the custody of the Federal Bureau of Prisons upon designation of a federal facility.  Federal sentences are served without the possibility of parole.
