A New Iberia man was sentenced to about nine years in prison Thursday for child pornography.
According to this release from U.S. Attorney Stephanie Finley's office, Jason Daniel Scott of New Iberia was sentenced to 108 months in prison for downloading child porn onto his home computer.
The 32-year-old Scott, according to Friday's press release, was sentenced in federal court on Thursday by U.S. District Judge Patricia Minaldi on one count of possession of child porn.
From Thursday's release:
According to evidence presented at the January 29, 2015 guilty plea, agents detected child pornography being downloaded from an internet file sharing service in October of 2010 to a residence in Lafayette Parish, which is where Scott was living at the time. The home was searched on October 20, 2010, and a computer was seized. Once the computer's hard drive was examined, agents found child pornography that was downloaded from the internet.
