James Jay Say Sentenced in U.S. District Cour
The United States Attorney's Office announced that during a federal court session in Billings, on March 14, 2012, before Chief U.S. District Judge Richard F. Cebull, JAMES JAY SAY, a 34-year-old resident of Buena Park, California, appeared for sentencing. SAY was sentenced to a term of:
Prison: 240 months
Special Assessment: $200
Forfeiture: computer equipment
Supervised Release: life
SAY was sentenced after a federal district court trial in which he was found guilty of advertisement of child pornography and distribution of child pornography. Assistant U.S. Attorney Marcia K. Hurd prosecuted the case for the United States.
Because there is no parole in the federal system, the "truth in sentencing" guidelines mandate that SAY will likely serve all of the time imposed by the court. In the federal system, SAY does have the opportunity to earn a sentence reduction for "good behavior." However, this reduction will not exceed 15% of the overall sentence.
The investigation was a cooperative effort between the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Montana Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force.
