Jason W. Moore – Repeat Sex Offender

A South Range man pleaded guilty Friday in federal court to possessing child pornography on a computer he purchased on the day he was sentenced for the same crime in Douglas County Circuit Court.

On Sept. 5, 2007, Jason W. Moore, 34, was placed on probation and ordered to serve six months in jail during weekends after 2,400 images of child pornography were recovered from a computer during a search of his Conley Rd. residence. Earlier that same day Moore bought a laptop computer and used it to access child pornography he had previously downloaded from the internet, said Superior Police Detective Thomas Champaigne.

Police sent 100 images recovered from Moore’s laptop to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children which identified some of the images as “known” images of child pornography, according to the affidavit Champaigne filed in the case.

In court Friday, Moore admitted purchasing a computer with his wife and downloading child pornography on it. Within days of buying the laptop, police were at Moore’s residence after a Canadian woman contacted authorities about Moore telling her he was having sex with his daughter and her friends, which he said were nine or 10 years old, according to Champaigne’s affidavit.

Moore denied molesting any minor and that his internet chats were all “fantasy,” according to the affidavit.

On Dec. 5, 2007, Circuit Judge George Glonek revoked Moore’s probation and sentenced him to 18 months in prison on the 2005 possession charge, according to online court records.

On Friday, District Judge Barbara Crabb found Moore guilty of one count of possessing sexually explicit images of children between Aug. 28 and Sept. 5, 2007. He faces maximum penalties of 10 years in prison,$250,000 fine and lifetime probation at his July 24 sentencing before Crabb. Moore would have been facing 10 to 20 years in prison in federal court had he possessed child pornography after his Douglas County conviction.
