Arlington man gets 10 years on child porn charges

Posted

BOSTON >> An Arlington man convicted more than a decade ago of possessing child pornography has been sentenced to 10 years in prison following a second conviction on similar charges.

Federal prosecutors say 45-year-old Derrick Jones was also sentenced Monday to 10 years of probation following completion of his prison term.

Jones pleaded guilty in January to receipt of child pornography and possession of child pornography.

Prosecutors say Jones used file sharing computer programs to trade and receive images of child pornography and also downloaded and viewed images and videos of children being sexually exploited. Jones also had a collection of about 34,000 images and 13,000 videos of child pornography.
