Knox Man Sentenced on Federal Child Pornography Charge

 A federal judge sentenced a Knox man to seven years in prison and 10 years of supervised release on a child pornography charge.

Jeffrey Farmer, 42, previously pleaded guilty to the felony offense of accessing with intent to view child pornography. Starke County Detectives obtained a state search warrant to search Farmer’s residence and seize computers and digital storage devices following an investigation by members of the Indiana Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.

Farmer admitted he used the computer to view digital images from the internet that depicted prepubescent minors or minors who had not attained the age of 12 years engaging in sexually explicit conduct, according to court documents.
