MCKINNEY MAN SENTENCED FOR CHILD PORNOGRAPHY VIOLATIONS
SHERMAN, TX – United States Attorney Rebecca A. Gregory announced today that a 33-year-old McKinney man has been sentenced to 151 months in federal prison for child pornography violations in the Eastern District of Texas.
JASON DAVID FALLICK pleaded guilty to two counts of knowingly transporting and shipping child pornography in interstate commerce by computer on May 21, 2008, and was sentenced today by United States District Judge Marcia A. Crone.
According to information presented in court, on December 2, 2005 and December 12, 2005, Fallick transported child pornography via the internet knowing that all of the images contained visual depictions of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct. Fallick admitted knowingly transporting such images through his use of an F-serve using mIRC. Fallick also admitted that some of the images depicted minors who had not yet attained the age of 12 years and portrayed minors in sadistic or masochistic conduct or in other depictions of violence.
This case is part of Project Safe Childhood (PSC). In February 2006, the Department of Justice created Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative designed to protect children from online exploitation and abuse. Led by the United States Attorneys Offices, Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state and local resources to better locate, apprehend, and prosecute individuals who exploit children via the Internet, as well as identify and rescue victims.

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Terri L. Hagan.
