A Cumberland County man will be spending the next 96 months in prison for distributing images of child sexual abuse.

Acting U.S. Attorney Rachael A. Honig says 32-year-old Bruce Jackson of Bridgeton previously pleaded guilty before a judge in Camden federal court to one count of distributing child pornography. Jackson's sentence was imposed on Friday.

According to documents filed in this case,

Jackson used a peer-to-peer file-sharing program to download and share videos and images of child sexual abuse. Between November 2017 and June 2018, law enforcement downloaded 61 videos of child sexual abuse from Jackson’s computer. After executing a search warrant at Jackson’s home in August 2018, agents located more than 300 videos of child sexual abuse on one of Jackson’s thumb drives. Jackson admitted that he used the peer-to-peer file-sharing program to make images and videos of child sexual abuse available for others to download from his computer.

In addition to the prison term, Jackson was sentenced to five years of supervised release and he was ordered to register as a sex offender.
