Acting U.S. Attorney Duane A. Evans announced that CHRISTOPHER JAMIESON, age 34, a resident of Douglasville, Georgia, was sentenced today after previously pleading guilty to receipt of child pornography.
U.S. District Judge Martin L.C. Feldman sentenced JAMIESON to 97 months incarceration, five years of supervised release, and ordered that JAMIESON register as a sex offender under the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act.
According to court documents, in November 2013, Special Agents with the United States Department of Homeland Security, Homeland Security Investigations (“HSI”) and the United States Postal Inspection Service arrested JAMIESON after they determined that JAMIESON was responsible for receiving videos depicting the sexual exploitation of children on the Internet. JAMIESON pled guilty to knowingly receiving several videos depicting the sexual exploitation of children from Jonathan Johnson, the administrator of a multi-national child pornography website.
This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice. Led by United States Attorneys’ Offices and the Criminal Division's Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section (CEOS), 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 to identify and rescue victims.

Acting U.S. Attorney Evans praised the work of the Homeland Security Investigations and the U.S. Postal Inspection Service in investigating this matter. The prosecution of this case was handled by Project Safe Childhood Coordinator and Fraud Unit Chief, Assistant U.S. Attorney Brian M. Klebba.
