Galt man sentenced to prison for producing child porn

A 32-year-old man from Galt was sentenced Friday to 17 1/2 years in prison for producing child pornography.

U.S. District Judge Garland E. Burrell Jr. also sentenced Tyler Jordan to a life term of supervised release following his time in prison, according to a U.S. Attorney’s Office news release.

Court documents indicate that Jordan offered files of child pornography for download on a file-trading website. Law enforcement agents downloaded 60 child pornography files from him. During a subsequent search of Jordan’s computer, officers found more than 20,000 images and videos that showed minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct.

Authorities said Jordan admitted to inappropriately touching two children, both of whom were younger than 12, and taking sexually explicit pictures of them.

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. The task force investigates online child exploitation crimes, including child pornography, enticement and sex trafficking.
