Registered Sex Offender Sentenced to 252 Months in Prison for New Child Porn Crime

DAYTON – Jason Alexander Bigler, 46, of Dayton, was sentenced in U.S. District Court to 252 months in prison and a lifetime of supervised release for knowingly distributing child pornography of children under the age of 12. Bigler is a registered sex offender because of a prior federal conviction of possessing child pornography.

 

Benjamin C. Glassman, United States Attorney for the Southern District of Ohio, Angela L. Byers, Special Agent in Charge, Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and members of the FBI’s Child Exploitation Task Force announced the sentence handed down by Senior U.S. District Judge Thomas M. Rose.

 

According to the statement of facts attached to the plea agreement, which was entered into in September, Bigler distributed, received, transported and possessed more than 2,150 images and 215 videos of child pornography. The images and videos showed adult males raping and abusing pre-pubescent and infant females.

 

Bigler used Kik and Omegle messenger applications to meet and communicate with the individuals with whom he traded child pornography.

 

U.S. Attorney Glassman commended the investigation of this case by the FBI and Assistant United States Attorney Dwight K. Keller, who is representing the United States in this case.
