MADISON, WI—John W. Vaudreuil, United States Attorney for the Western District of Wisconsin, announced that Jeremy Huart, 26, Westchester, Illinois, was sentenced today by U.S. District Judge William M. Conley to 121 months in federal prison, to be followed by 25 years’ supervised release, for a second federal conviction of possession of child pornography. Huart pleaded guilty to this crime on February 13, 2013, and has remained in custody since his guilty plea.
Huart was convicted of possessing child pornography on September 25, 2008, in the Northern District of Illinois. Huart was sentenced to 65 months in federal prison, to be followed by three years of supervised release, as a result of this conviction. In September 2010, after serving time in federal prison, Huart was placed at a halfway house at Rock Valley Community Program in Janesville, Wisconsin.
On August 19, 2011, staff at Rock Valley discovered Huart had a contraband cell phone that contained approximately 214 images of child pornography. On September 12, 2012, Huart was indicted in the Western District of Wisconsin for possession of child pornography based on the images found while he was at the halfway house in Janesville.
The charges against Huart were the result of an investigation conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The prosecution of the case has been handled by Assistant U.S. Attorney Julie S. Pfluger.
