Yuba City Man Sentenced to 20 Years in Prison for Child Pornography Offense

SACRAMENTO, Calif. Chad Carl Jaycox, 28, of Yuba City, was sentenced today to 20 years in prison to be followed by 25 years of supervised release for receiving images of child pornography, U.S. Attorney McGregor W. Scott announced.

According to court documents, Jaycox received the images between April 2011 and September 2013. Jaycox was convicted in 2010 of unlawful sex with a minor, and he was on probation for that offense when federal agents executed a search warrant at his residence in September 2013. Upon the discovery of child pornography, Jaycox was arrested by state law enforcement agents for a violation of his probation.

This case was the product of an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Matthew G. Morris prosecuted the case.

This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse. Led by the United States Attorneys’ Offices and the Criminal Division’s Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section, Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state, and local resources to locate, apprehend, and prosecute those who sexually exploit children, and to identify and rescue victims.
