Jacksonville Man Sentenced To Five Years In Federal Prison For Receiving Child Sex Abuse Images From A Convicted Sex Offender Over The Internet

Jacksonville, Florida – United States District Judge Brian J. Davis has sentenced Stanley Hagan, Jr. (33, Jacksonville) to five years in federal prison for receiving child pornography over the internet. Hagan was also ordered to register as a sex offender.    

According to court documents, Darren Dozier, a convicted child sex offender, was released from prison in 2015 and established a residence in Philadelphia. While there, he molested an 8-year-old child and produced images and videos of this abuse. On December 19, 2015, and again on August 7, 2016, Hagan engaged in sexually explicit online conversations with Dozier. During these conversations, Hagan pretended to be a 15-year old girl and, during the December conversation, Dozier offered to send Hagan sexually explicit images of his minor victim. Hagan accepted the offer. Dozier then sent Hagan four images depicting Dozier sexually abusing the child. Hagan also asked Dozier to send him a sexually explicit video of the child. During an interview with FBI agents in Jacksonville on August 30, 2017, Hagan admitted that he had solicited and received these images from Dozier. 

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

It is another case that 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 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.
