Hagatña, Guam – SHAWN N. ANDERSON, United States Attorney for the Districts of Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands, announced that defendant Jason Solatario Brown, age 48, from Yigo, Guam was sentenced to 120 months imprisonment for Possession of Child Pornography, in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 2252.  The Court also ordered five years of supervised release following imprisonment and a mandatory $100.00 special assessment fee.  The Court also ordered Brown to register with the Sex Offender Registry anywhere he lives, works, or goes to school.

On November 24, 2020, a Federal Bureau of Investigation special agent searched Brown’s cellular telephone.  During the examination the agent discovered 28 videos and images of child sexual abuse material (CSAM).  The images depicted adult males engaging in sexually explicit conduct with young boys.  Evidence revealed that Brown shared the videos and images with another person using the Facebook messenger app.  Brown shared the images after receiving a request for images of children below the age of fifteen.

“Our children are facing unprecedented threats to their safety,” stated United States Attorney Anderson.  “Digital technology facilitates nearly every crime.  We must make every effort to combat the exploitation of children.  Those who violate their innocence will be held accountable.”

“This sentence demonstrates that the FBI will vigorously pursue those who target young innocent children and bring justice to those who have been victimized,” said FBI Special Agent in Charge Steven Merrill.  “We ask the public to be vigilant and report these heinous acts to the FBI at 1-800-CALL-FBI or at so we can put these perpetrators away for a long time

This investigation was conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.  This prosecution is part of the Project Safe Childhood initiative, whose mission is to combat internet or technology-facilitated sexual exploitation crimes against children.  PSC works in coordination with U.S. Attorney’s Offices, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.  The case was prosecuted by Rosetta L. San Nicolas, Assistant United States Attorney in the District of Guam.
