HARRISBURG - The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced that Jordan James, age 22, of Brooklyn, New York, was sentenced yesterday to 96 months’ imprisonment by Chief United States District Court Judge Christopher C. Conner, for distribution of child pornography.
