(Newser) – Turns out Paris Hilton can be useful: Thanks to the celebutante, a kiddie porn collector has been caught red-handed, the Houston Press reports. For some reason, 22-year-old Josiah Samuel Stevens thought it would be a good idea to include a “sexually lascivious” photo of a toddler in his online submission to Paris Hilton’s My New BFF. Just a guess: He won’t be a contestant on the reality show.

“The image that was uploaded by Stevens in March 2008 onto the website depicted a nude prepubescent female, approximately two to three years of age, posed in a sexually lascivious manner touching the exposed and erect penis of a nude adult male which was pressed to her sexual organ,” according to a statement from the US Attorney’s Office. Even more disturbing? “This image posted on the website by Stevens was accessible to the public and any person could view the image.” Police found more images and videos on his computer; he was handed a five-year prison sentence.
