Federal authorities have obtained a guilty verdict and a lengthy sentence for a Collinsville man involved in child pornography. 41 year old Jeremy T. Blair was found guilty following an incident in May of 2015 where Blair was found to be sharing child pornography on-line. He was sentenced to 10 years in prison.
An undercover investigation conducted by the FBI discovered that Blair may have been sharing child pornography on a peer-to-peer network. A search warrant obtained by the FBI enabled federal officials to confirm their suspicions and also found that Blair was a registered sex offender at the time of the crime. Authorities executed the search warrant in July 2015 and found more than 2 dozen pornographic videos, all containing young children, on his home computer. The case was prosecuted under Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative launched in 2006 by the Department of Justice to combat child pornography.
