Jamie Overstreet Sentenced to 20 Years for Making Child Porn

A Huntington man is headed to federal prison for producing, possessing and trafficking in child pornography.

29-year-old Jamie Overstreet was sentenced to 20 years in prison during a hearing in U.S. District Court in Huntington on Monday.

Back in December, Overstreet pleaded guilty of the charges.

Prosecutors say the conviction stems from an investigation in California of a person suspected of possessing child pornography and sharing it with Overstreet.

Authorities in West Virginia searched Overstreet's residence.

Prosecutors say it was clear that Overstreet was involved in a nationwide ring of individuals engaged in the sexual abuse of children, and the production and trafficking in child pornography.

Investigators found hundreds of images and videos of pre-pubescent minors engaged in sexual activity on Overstreet's computer. Many of these images and videos were produced by Overstreet
