Keeping Your Kids Safe: Child Pornography on Facebook Gets Miss. Man Five Years

HOLLY SPRINGS, Miss.–Posting child pornography to Facebook is what led to Rio Jemon Jeffries five-year sentence in the state pen Tuesday. Jeffries will have to register as a sex offender when he gets out.

Attorney Ge. Jim Hood said Jeffries was caught with child pornography after a tip to the Cyber Crime Unit from the Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

“This defendant was caught posting child pornography, which he found on the internet, to his Facebook page,” said Hood. “We appreciate Judge (Kelly) Luther (Marshall County Circuit Court) sending a message to those dealing in child pornography that they will go to the penitentiary without parole.”

Jeffries, 25, of Holly Springs, was originally sentenced to ten years. Five are suspended. He must also pay $1,000 to the Mississippi crime victims’ compensation fund and register as a sex offender upon release.
