FOR CHILD PORNOGRAPHY


            KANSAS CITY, Mo. – John F. Wood, United States Attorney for the Western District of Missouri, announced that a Lee’s Summit, Mo., man was sentenced in federal court today for possessing child pornography.


            Jeremy Stan, 33, of Lee’s Summit, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Dean Whipple this afternoon to six years in federal prison without parole.


            On Jan. 4, 2008, Stan pleaded guilty to possessing child pornography. Stan admitted that he used MyKazaa, a file-sharing program, to download images from the Internet onto his personal computer. Stan admitted that he obtained videos of children engaging in sexual acts that included children as young as 6 years old.

Some of the children are part of a known victim series. The video of the German victim contains bondage. Some of the other victims are clearly under the age of 12.
