Booneville Man Pleads Guilty to Sending Child Pornography
Sean Jones, of Booneville, will spend nine years in prison after pleading guilty to sending or transmitting child pornography, Attorney General Jim Hood announced.
The 36-year-old was sentenced on one count of child exploitation Monday by Prentiss County Circuit Court Judge Kelly Mims. Judge Mims sentenced him to 25 years in prison with nine years to serve and five years on supervised post-release supervision. Jones must also pay $1,000 to the Crime Victims Fund, $1,000 to the Children’s Trust Fund, and he must register as a sex offender. Additionally, Jones is required to relinquish all rights to property seized during the course of this investigation.
“We appreciate the assistance from the Prentiss County Sheriff’s Office and the FBI Task Force on this case, and I thank Judge Mims for putting another child predator behind bars,” General Hood said. “Our investigation revealed that this man was in possession of multiple images of child pornography on his devices we seized during the investigation. A child is abused every single time a picture is downloaded and viewed. We will lock-up those who victimize our children.”
This case was prosecuted by Special Assistant Attorney General Tina Herron of the AG’s Cybercrime Unit.
