Orange Park Man Sentenced To 7 Years In Prison For Receipt Of Child Pornography

Jacksonville, FL – U.S. District Judge Timothy Corrigan yesterday sentenced Randy Michael Jackson (40, Orange Park) to seven years in federal prison for receipt of child pornography. Jackson was indicted on February 20, 2013. He pleaded guilty to the offense on July 15, 013.

According to court documents, in February 2013, special agents with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) executed a search warrant at Jackson’s home, in Orange Park, and seized his computer. A forensic review of Jackson’s computer revealed that he had downloaded approximately 25,000 images and 500 hundred videos of children, as young as toddlers, engaged in sexually explicit conduct with adults. 

This case was investigated by Federal Bureau of Investigation. It was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Malisa Chokshi.

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 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.
