A 69-year-old Baton Rouge man who admitted to downloading videos of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct was sentenced Thursday to five years in federal prison.
George William Jarman, who pleaded guilty in October to attempted receipt of child pornography, also was ordered by Senior U.S. District Judge James Brady to register as a sex offender and pay $10,000 in restitution to two victims.
FBI investigators discovered sexually explicit images and videos of minors on computers belonging to Jarman and also determined he had used online subscriptions and peer-to-peer file sharing programs to access child porn between 2006 and 2008.
This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative launched by the Department of Justice in 2006 to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse.
