James Edward Whitfield – Repeat Sex Offender – Pedophile

public indecency for exposing himself to a minor

child molestation and enticing a child for indecent purposes



A convicted St. Marys child molester has been sentenced to more than 11 years in prison for possession of child pornography.

James Edward Whitfield, 25, was also sentenced Tuesday by U.S. District Judge Judge Anthony Aliamo to a lifetime period of supervised release after he serves his 137-month sentence.

He faced a minimum sentence of 10 years because he was previously convicted of child molestation, according to a release from U.S. Attorney Edmund Booth Jr.

Whitfield had pleaded guilty in April to a single count of possession of child pornography as part of a plea agreement in which the government dismissed charges of receipt of child pornography and transportation of child pornography.

Evidence showed Whitfield possessed numerous pictures and 37 videos depicting child pornography. He told investigators in a sworn affidavit he got the pornography over the Internet while using a peer-to-peer program called Limewire.

He became the subject of an investigation after he took his computer to be repaired and a technician discovered a document file on the machine’s hard drive containing the pornography.

Prior to his conviction, Whitfield told investigators he was convicted of misdemeanor public indecency for exposing himself to a minor on April 13, 2003. He was also charged with child molestation and enticing a child for indecent purposes on Sept. 25, 2003. Both cases occurred in Houston County, according to court documents.

Whitfield had been held without bail because he was found living in the 300 block of West Wilbur Street in Kingsland with his pregnant, 17-year-old girlfriend, which was a violation of his release as a sex offender.
