A Kettering man has been sentenced to more than 22 years in prison for raping two toddlers and recording the abuse.
Matthew Jones, 44, pleaded guilty in federal court to producing child pornography.
According to court documents, Jones raped two 3-year-old victims between 2003 and 2009 and created more than 100 images of each instance of abuse.
Jones photographed two other minor girls and at least six adult women while they were sleeping, according to a release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office Southern District of Ohio.
Additionally, based on searches of Jones’ computer, he engaged in peer-to-peer exchange of more than 100,000 images and videos of child porn, according to the release.
“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.”
Jones’ is also facing criminal charges in Greene County and Montgomery County and, according to the release, and the Greene County Prosecutor’s Office will recommend Jones receive 15 years to life in prison for that offense. The Montgomery County Prosecutor’s Office will recommend Jones serves 20 years up to life in prison for the Montgomery County offenses.
As part of the plea agreement, Jones will serve his sentences concurrently with each other.
