Jefferson County Man Sentenced to 78 Months in Prison for Possession of Child Pornography
Attorney General Jack Conway today announced that a Jefferson County man has been sentenced to 78 months in prison and a lifetime term of supervised release after pleading guilty to possession of child pornography. The sentencing of 28-year-old Jeremiah Oldham in U.S. District Court on November 4, 2011 follows an investigation by General Conway's Cybercrimes Unit.
Because of the hard work of my Cybercrimes investigators, another child pornographer is behind bars," General Conway said. "I would also like to thank the U.S. Attorney's Office for its hard work and dedication in bringing this case to a successful close."
The prosecution of this case was handled by Assistant United States Attorney A. Spencer McKiness.
According to his plea agreement, Oldham acknowledges that from September 23, 2009 to November 24, 2009, he knowingly possessed images and videos depicting child pornography. Investigators from General Conway's Cybercrimes Unit executed a search warrant at Oldham's Louisville residence in November of 2009. A forensic examination of his computer and external hard-drive revealed numerous images and videos of child pornography. According to court records, Oldham told investigators that the images of child pornography located on his computer belonged solely to him.
Since its creation in June of 2008, General Conway's Cybercrimes Unit has launched more than 230 child pornography investigations and seized more than 300,000 child pornographic images and videos from the Internet. The unit is also a member of the Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force.
