Convicted Sex Offender Ordered To Pay More Than $13,000 In Restitution To Child Victim Of Sexual Exploitation

Jacksonville, Florida – United States District Judge Brian J. Davis has ordered Stanley Hagan, Jr. (34, Jacksonville) to pay $13,619.52 in restitution to the custodian of a child who was molested in 2015 by Darren Dozier, a convicted sex offender from Philadelphia. According to court records, in late 2015, Dozier sent images over the internet depicting his sexual abuse of the 8-year-old child to Hagan. After being identified by the FBI, Hagan admitted to his participation in the ongoing sexual exploitation of the child and pleaded guilty to receiving child pornography. 

On May 31, 2018, Hagan was sentenced to 5 years in federal prison, ordered to serve a 10-year term of supervised release, and required to register as a sex offender. Dozier was prosecuted in Philadelphia and sentenced to 35 years in federal prison.     

This case was investigated by the FBI (Jacksonville and Philadelphia). It was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney D. Rodney Brown.

This is another case 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 individuals who sexually exploit children, and to identify and rescue victims.
