U.S. Attorney's Office, Western District of Arkansas

Fayetteville, Arkansas – Kenneth Elser, United States Attorney for the Western District of Arkansas, announced that Jeremy Lynn McGrew, age 36, of Springdale, was sentenced today to 75 months in federal prison followed by fifteen years of supervised release on one count of Receipt of Child Pornography. The Honorable Timothy L. Brooks presided over the sentencing hearing in the United States District Court in Fayetteville.


According to court records, in December of 2016, members of the Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) identified an IP address that was making files of child pornography available for download. As a result, members of the ICAC Taskforce executed a federal search warrant on April 5, 2017, at the residence of Jeremy Lynn McGrew, which is located in the Western District of Arkansas, Fayetteville Division. At that time, law enforcement confiscated multiple items of digital evidence that contained child pornography. While on the scene, law enforcement also encountered McGrew. After being informed of his Miranda rights, McGrew admitted viewing and accessing child pornography for fourteen years.


McGrew was indicted in June 2017 and pled guilty in August 2017.


This case was investigated by the Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC).  Assistant United States Attorney Amy Driver prosecuted the case for the United States.
