Panama City man sentenced to 78 months in prison for possession of child porn.

PANAMA CITY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - Curtis Jason Jones, 39, of Panama City Beach was sentenced to
78 months in prison Thursday after pleading guilty on October 12, 2017, to possession of child pornography.

In March 2015, law enforcement officers received information that Jones was in possession of child pornography. In June 2015, officers executed a search warrant on Jones’s residence.

Forensic examinations of the electronic items seized during the search revealed hundreds of images and one video of child pornography, including 56 images and one video file containing known child victims previously identified by law enforcement.

The child pornography images that Jones possessed showed children who appeared to be 10 years of age and younger, with some as young as five years of age.

The case was investigated by the Panama City Beach Police Department and the United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement Homeland Security Investigations. The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Christopher J. Thielemann.
