BROOKHAVEN, Miss.–Sending child pornography over several e-mail accounts has Jordan Scott Gill, 26, of Brookhaven, going to the state prison for ten years, said Atty. Gen. Jim Hood. Gill pleaded guilty to possession and distribution of child pornography this week.
The case was investigated by the Attorney General’s Cyber Crime Unit/Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force following numerous cyber tips from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, said Hood in a news release.
“Our working relationship with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children is invaluable in tracking down child predators in our state,” said Hood. “I want to thank Judge Taylor for the strong sentence which lets child predators be warned that we intend to put them behind bars.”
Gill was sentenced to 40 years. Judge Michael Taylor suspended 30 years and also ordered Gill to pay $1,000 to the children’s trust fund and $1,000 to the crime victim compensation fund and register as a sex offender upon release.
He’ll also be on probation for five years.
