JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A federal jury convicted a 35-year-old man for receiving and possessing videos of child pornography using the Internet.
Travis Rocky Dixon was indicted on March 28, 2012.
In 2011, evidence was introduced which stated two law enforcement officers downloaded videos depicting child pornography from a host computer with an IP address that lead to Dixon's residence in Palatka.
On January 18, 2012, a federal search warrant was executed and FBI Forensic examiners downloaded video files with titles indicative of child pornography from Dixon's computer. Dixon said, the morning of January 18, 2012 he used a file sharing program and "just started looking around" and that "one thing led to another" and he started downloading.
According to a State Attorney press release, Dixon said he was the primary computer user and admitted to looking at child pornography for about a year.
The release says his computer had at least 64 videos depicting children engaged in sexually explicit conduct and that at least two videos of child pornography were downloaded the morning of January 18, 2012.
Dixon faces a minimum of 5 years and up to 20 years in prison on each of the two charges as well as a maximum of 10 years in prison on the possession charge. He remains in the custody of the United States Marshals Service.
Dixon's sentencing hearing is scheduled for February 24, 2014.
