Jefferson County Man Pleads Guilty to Child Pornography Charges following Attorney General's Investigation
Attorney General Jack Conway today announced that 28-year-old Jeremiah Oldham of Jefferson County has entered a guilty plea to possession of child pornography. The plea followed an indictment by a federal grand jury in Louisville and an investigation by General Conway's Cybercrimes Unit.
According to the plea agreement, Oldham acknowledges that from September 23, 2009 to November 24, 2009 he knowingly possessed images and videos depicting child pornography. A forensic examination of Oldham's computer and external hard-drive revealed numerous images and videos of child pornography.
"As a result of my Cybercrimes investigators and successful prosecution by the U.S. Attorney's Office, another child pornographer is now behind bars," General Conway said.
Oldham faces a maximum term of 10 years in prison, a term of supervised release for at least five years and up to life, and a maximum fine of $250,000. United States District Court Judge Charles R. Simpson, III will sentence Oldham in Louisville on November 4, 2011 at 11:00 a.m.
Prosecution of this case was handled by Assistant United States Attorney A. Spencer McKiness.
Since its creation in June of 2008, General Conway's Cybercrimes Unit has launched more than 230 child pornography investigations and seized more than 280,000 child pornographic images and videos from the Internet. The unit is also a member of the Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force.
