A Brookhaven man is going to prison for child exploitation, announced Attorney General Jim Hood today.

Jordan Scott Gill, 26, of Brookhaven, pleaded guilty to charges of child exploitation before Judge Michael Taylor in Brookhaven Circuit Court Monday. As a result, Gill was sentenced to 40 years with ten years to serve and five years of post-release supervision. Gill must also pay $1,000 to the children's trust fund, $1,000 to the crime victim compensation fund and register as a sex offender upon release.

Gill admitted to possession and distribution of multiple images of child pornography using various email accounts. The case was investigated by the Attorney General's Cyber Crime Unit/Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force following numerous cyber tips from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

"Our working relationship with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children is invaluable in tracking down child predators in our state," said Attorney General Hood. "I want to thank Judge Taylor for the strong sentence which lets child predators be warned that we intend to put them behind bars."

This case was prosecuted by Special Assistant Attorneys General Brandon Ogburn and Linda Davis.
