A 48-year-old Dayton man will spend the next 11 years in federal prison for distributing images of child sexual abuse.

Jason Pollet was sentenced Monday in U.S. District Court in Dayton to 132 months in prison, or 11 years, after he pleaded guilty in November to distributing child pornography, according to a release from Kenneth Parker, U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Ohio.

“Between November and December 2020, Pollet used Kik Messenger and Wickr — two internet-based messaging apps — to distribute more than 30 images and videos of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct to an undercover law enforcement officer,” the release stated.

Law enforcement agents and task force officers in the Southern District of Ohio conducted an online investigation throughout 2020 and 2021 to identify those using social media and messaging apps to commit child exploitation offenses, according to the release.
