Officials say 25-year-old Jerod Oliverius from Lincoln was sentenced to 3 years in prison for possession of child pornography.
After his release from prison, Oliverius will be required to serve a 5 year term of supervised release and be registered as a sex offender.
While conducting a proactive file sharing investigation in December, 2010, an investigator with the Lincoln Police Department was able to view and access child pornography images from a computer that was using file sharing software publicly available on the Internet through a Peer-to-Peer Network. Using computer programs, the investigator was able to identify the Internet Protocol address for the computer sharing the images of child pornography. The Internet service provider indicated that the IP address was assigned to an individual residing in Lincoln.
A search warrant was executed at that individual’s residence in February of 2011. Oliverius was one of the persons residing there, and when investigators examined Oliverius’ computer and hard drive, they found more than 70 videos and more than 10,000 digital images related to child pornography.
