Oceanside man sentenced to federal prison for child pornography

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - An Oceanside man was sentenced Friday to 10 years in federal prison for distributing child pornography while employed as a county jail counselor.

Jeffrey Alan Lee, 50, pleaded guilty in April to using a file-sharing program to disseminate sexually graphic images of minors over a three-month period in 2010, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office.

The ex-sheriff's department employee has been in custody since his arrest at the downtown central jail on Aug. 17 of last year.

Earlier that day, federal investigators searched his home and found tens of thousands of suspected still and video child-pornography images, according to the FBI.

In addition to sentencing Lee to 120 months in custody, U.S. District Judge Janis Sammartino ordered him to serve 10 years of supervised release and register as a sex offender.
