Fair Oaks man sentenced to prison for receiving child pornography

A 39-year-old Fair Oaks man has been sentenced to eight years and two months in prison for receiving child pornography.

Aleksandar Randjelovich was sentenced Thursday in Sacramento by U.S. District Judge Troy L. Nunley, according to a U.S. Attorney’s Office news release.

Law enforcement agents identified a computer operating out of Randjelovich’s residence offering files of child pornography through a file sharing network, according to court documents. After executing a search warrant, agents found 1,276 videos and 3,690 images containing child pornography. In a plea agreement entered in July, Randjelovich admitted that he downloaded files four to six times per week from about Sept. 3, 2008, until Oct. 12, 2012.

Randjelovich was remanded into federal custody following Thursday’s sentencing hearing.

The case resulted from an investigation by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Homeland Security Investigations.
