University Park's Erika Perdue Pleads Guilty to Distributing Child Porn

Erika Perdue
Last January, an FBI agent based in Maryland was cruising through a peer-to-peer file-sharing network in search of child porn. There, he stumbled upon a user named "Classybitch," who offered him access to several hundred videos and images with file names like "Taboo Incest - Grampa Fucks Sleeping Girl Pedo Pthc Porn" and "2yo+mom+dad." He downloaded seven.

Three months later, federal agents showed up at a $1.4 million University Park McMansion with a search warrant and arrested "Classybitch," aka Erika Susan Perdue, the 42-year-old wife of an intellectual property attorney. According to court documents filed at the time, she admitted to sharing massive amounts of child porn, so much that she couldn't recall sharing those seven files with the FBI agent, or several more with another undercover law enforcement officer. She did it every day while her husband was at work, she explained, and had done so since about 1999.

Perdue's case has since wound its way through the federal court system. She was briefly released to attend sex offender-specific treatment at a rehab facility in Argyle, but was taken back to prison after attempting suicide. At one point, worried neighbors reported seeing her in her neon green Camaro with the vanity "My Syn" license plates driving around the Park Cities, but they were mistaken.

When she was indicted last year, Perdue pleaded not guilty to transporting and shipping child pornography. She reversed course on Tuesday, pleading guilty in exchange for a 14-year prison sentence. She will also have to pay $5,000 to "Vicky," who was identified by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children as one of the children in the video.

like I said!  that is a man!  she was not born a woman. the attorney husband has managed to keep this on the down low. how embarrassing is it to him and his business as a intellectual property attorney? God, give this man strength to get over this only if he was not involved in such a horrific crime himself.

this site is like a ghost town,  no conversation since twelve days ago. Geez! where is everyone? this is a horrific crime and no one is on board. What the heck is going on here?  Everyone seems to share the same sentiments but, where is the noise!  A lot of children have been abused by this female MONSTER!

So who was that driving around in that neon green Camaro after all?  this woman is totally YUKKY! not sick or crazy just so repulsive,  please do not let her out in bail she is not to be trusted. I mean if she is capable of hurting innocent babies, toddlers, and children this animal is capable of anything!

Anyone involved in this horrific sin deserves to fry. How can you rob a child of their innocence and go on day to day like there is nothing wrong with you. You are dead inside and don't deserve to be living.

14 years? seems excessive! Dont condone her Highland Park activities, but unless she filmed, starred or otherwise directly participated in the materials - it just sounds like a long sentence. If Federal, there is no parole.

Her eyes are the color of baby diaper waste, her lips painted a shade of slut and she drove a neon green Camaro ~ the calling card of trash. They should arrest her husband for attempted assault on every University Park resident for bringing that garbage in from the curb where her mother raised her, I would safely assume given the Camaro.

I was facebook friends with her, she actually came to one of my shows, she didn't seem odd at all.

Her husband probably advised her not to copyright the photos.

The husband is always the last to know! I wonder if he has filed for divorce yet? If not... why not?

Was she doing this for money or just fame?

This seems like an awfully short sentence, just over a year for each year she circulated thousands of photos of children being sexually assaulted. Particularly compared to the sentences men receive.

Aren't people who have 5 names really important? Sorry, it's a level playing field with equally proportioned pros and cons -- get off whatever box you are on and shorten your name for credibility

@DirtyP1 @lzippitydoo One of my male cousins was convicted of the same thing 2 years ago and he got 17.5 years in Federal prison.

@fu00 And your enthusiasm for this entire thread is pretty obvious, perhaps you are one of the Perdues, or one of their low life friends in University Park.
