Man gets 15 years in child porn case

Posted

A Sealy area man who pleaded guilty to three felony charges of promotion of child pornography on July 31 was sentenced Oct. 9 to 15 years in prison.

Michael Jack, 37, was sentenced in the 359th District Court in Montgomery County by Judge Kathleen Hamilton.

In February, Detective Serratt with the Montgomery County Precinct 1 Constable's Office was conducting an investigation into the exploitation of children. Serratt met Jack when he was acting in an undercover capacity online. Jack sent numerous images and videos of child pornography to Serratt during the course of the investigation.

Detectives with the Internet Crimes Against Children's Task Force, Department of Public Safety, along with special agents assigned to the Department of Homeland Security, executed an arrest warrant and search warrant in Sealy. As a result of the thorough two-year investigation conducted by Serratt, Jack was arrested for promotion of child pornography. Hundreds of additional images and videos of child pornography, as well as images of bestiality were found as a result of the search warrant.

“This defendant sexually exploited hundreds of children by sending and receiving images of child pornography, and today justice was served. Montgomery County Precinct 1 Constable’s Office, special agents with Homeland Security, Texas Department of Public Safety and other members of the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force all played an integral role in this investigation,” said Assistant District Attorney Laura Bond.
