Previously Convicted Child Molester Sentenced to a Decade in Federal Prison for Receipt of Child Pornography
|U.S. Attorney’s Office November 22, 2010|
GAINESVILLE, GA—JERRY RAY KINMAN, 52, of Cumming, Georgia, was sentenced today by Senior United States District Court Judge William C. O’Kelley to federal prison on federal charges of receipt and possession of child pornography.
United States Attorney Sally Quillian Yates said, “This defendant was previously convicted of child molestation. After being released from prison for those horrible crimes, he once again victimized children by purchasing child pornography. His behavior clearly poses a danger to our children and demands this lengthy prison sentence.”
KINMAN was sentenced to 10 years in prison to be followed by supervised release for the rest of his life. He was also ordered to pay a fine of $2,000. KINMAN pled guilty to the charges on August 12, 2010.
According to United States Attorney Yates and information presented in court: KINMAN was linked to an international child pornography investigation when he purchased images of child pornography from a Belarus-based child pornography website. During a consensual search of his home in Georgia on February 10, 2010, agents found images of child pornography on his home computer and stored on various forms of electronic media. The computer and the storage devices were seized and searched by the FBI. Investigating agents found approximately 14,000 images and 54 videos of child pornography on his computer.
In 1994, KINMAN, who was serving in the United States Navy and stationed in Hawaii, was convicted in a United States military court on three counts of indecent acts with a child. As a result of those convictions, he served approximately four years in prison.
This case was investigated by the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
Assistant United States Attorneys Brent Alan Gray and Jill E. Steinberg prosecuted the case.
