Twenty-five year-old Jovon Eugene Kendrick was sentenced to 40 years with 10 to serve and 30 years post-release supervision. He must register as a sex offender and pay a $5,000 fine in addition to $1,000 to the Children’s Trust Fund.

“Our cybercrime division continues fighting the acts of these perverts every day,” said General Hood. “This young man had videos and pictures of children as young as four years old engaged in sexual activity. That is absolutely disgusting, and I am pleased that Judge Harrell has put him where he can’t continue to abuse our precious children.”

Kendrick was arrested in April following an investigation of his online activity. He was arrested by investigators with the Attorney General’s Cyber Crime Unit with assistance from the Columbia Police Department.
