Nassau County Man Arrested And Federally Charged With Receiving Child Pornography

Jacksonville, Florida – United States Attorney A. Lee Bentley, III announced today that Clement Ashford Reeves, Jr. (73, Yulee) has been charged by indictment with receiving child pornography over the Internet. If convicted, he faces a mandatory minimum penalty of 5 years, up to 20 years, in federal prison and a potential life term of supervision. Reeves was arrested at his residence on February 16, 2016.        

This case was investigated by the U.S. Department of Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations. It is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney D. Rodney Brown.

An indictment is merely a formal charge that a defendant has committed one or more violations of federal criminal law, and every defendant is presumed innocent until, and unless, proven guilty.

It 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 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.  For more information about Project Safe Childhood, please visit www.justice.gov/psc.
