Willoughby man sentenced to more than six years in prison for having images of children being sexually assaulted

A Willoughby man was sentenced to more than six years in prison for having images of children being sexually assaulted by adults and engaged in bestiality, said Acting U.S. Attorney David A, Sierleja.

 

John Clements, 34, was sentenced to 78 months in federal prison.

He was previously found guilty of receiving and distributing visual depictions of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct.

Clements was found to have, in 2014, received and distributed computer images of actual prepubescent children being sexually assaulted by adults, being bound, and involving an animal, according to court documents and statements.

The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Brian M. McDonough and Michael A Sullivan following an investigation by the FBI Child Exploitation Task Force.
