Man Sentenced To 188 Months for Possession of Child Pornography
Brunswick, GA: James Martin Graham, 62, was sentenced on January 22, 2018, to 188 months in prison by United States District Court Judge Lisa Godbey Wood following his plea of guilty to possession of child pornography. The prison term will be followed by a 15-year term of supervised release. Graham will also be required to register as a sex offender upon his release from prison. Graham faced a statutory mandatory minimum sentence of at least 10 years because of a prior conviction in the State of Michigan relating to sexual abuse involving a minor.
The Southeast Georgia Child Exploitation Task Force investigated this case. Forensic examination of Graham’s computer identified more than 150 video files containing depictions of child pornography, some of which involved victims as young as four years old.
This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative of the U.S. Department of Justice that is designed to protect children from online exploitation and abuse. Led by United States Attorney’s Offices, Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state, and local resources to better locate, apprehend, and prosecute individuals who exploit children via the Internet, as well as to identify and rescue victims of those offenses.
Assistant United States Attorney Marcela C. Mateo prosecuted the case on behalf of the United States. For any questions, please contact the United States Attorney’s Office at (912) 652-4422.
