DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – A Kettering man was sentenced for producing hundreds of images of child pornography abuse, the United States Attorney for the Southern District of Ohio David M. DeVillers said.
44-year-old Matthew Jones was sentenced to 22 years in prison for creating hundreds of images while sexually abusing two 3-year-old toddlers in 2003 and 2009, according to DeVillers.
Jones has accepted responsibility for one count of rape of a person under 10 in Greene County and the same charge in Montgomery County, as well as two counts of sexual battery and one count of gross sexual imposition in Montgomery County.
He has yet to be sentenced for those charges.
One of the victims’ mothers caught Jones in the bedroom of the victim, prompting a call to law enforcement. Two other minor females and at least six adult women were photographed by Jones while they were sleeping. More than 100,000 images and videos of child pornography were discovered on a computer that Jones owned.
In Dec. 2018, Jones pleaded guilty to producing child pornography.
“Jones is a serial sexual abuser who memorialized his abuse by taking pictures of his abhorrent conduct,” U.S. Attorney David M. DeVillers said. “He has been sexually assaulting toddlers and adult women and engaging in online sharing of child pornography for more than 15 years. He deserves his lengthy stay in prison.”Grab the FREE WDTN News App from the Apple Store or Google play.
