A 24 year old Iowa man was sentenced to 188 months imprisonment for receiving and distributing child pornography. Chief Judge James E. Gritzner of the United States District Court also ordered that Jason Tyler Potter serve a term of supervised release of ten years following his incarceration and pay an assessment of $100 to Crime Victims Fund.
On November 19, 2010, the Scott County, Iowa, Sheriff’s Office, while conducting a peer to peer undercover investigation of trafficking in child pornography, identified an Internet protocol (IP) address with child pornography available for download via file-sharing software.
Deputies downloaded seven child pornography videos from this suspect. The IP address was thereafter linked with Potter’s residence in Lost Nation, Iowa, and a search warrant was executed on January 28, 2011. After waiving his Miranda rights, Potter
admitted that he was involved in searching for child pornography on the Internet.
Potter’s computer revealed numerous child pornography images and videos.
