Previously convicted sex offender headed back to prison for receiving child porn

Published: Tuesday, Dec. 17, 2013 - 4:21 pm

A previously convicted sex offender from Citrus Heights is going back to prison.

Travis Marshall Grey, 30, was sentenced Tuesday in Sacramento by U.S. District Judge John A. Mendez to 13 years, four months in prison for receiving child pornography and violating conditions of his supervised release, a federal Department of Justice news release shows.

Grey was convicted in 2007 for receipt of child pornography and had been ordered to register as a sex offender, court documents show. On Aug. 12, 2010, he was indicted in federal court for failure to register as a sex offender in Yolo County while living in Woodland. He subsequently was sentenced to 10 months in prison for failure to register and ordered to serve 10 years of supervised release and to register as a sex offender.

Grey was released from prison on Jan. 20, 2012. A year later, it was discovered that he had not updated his registration when he moved in December 2012 without his probation officer’s approval, violating his conditions of release.

In addition, between Jan. 25 and Jan. 29, 2013, Grey received images of child pornography through the Internet, authorities said. He also had unsupervised contact with minors during that time, also violating conditions of his release.

The case was investigated by the Sacramento Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, a federally and state-funded task force managed by the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department with agents from federal, state and local agencies.
