From U.S. Attorney's Office
U.S. Department of Justice, Western District of Kentucky
LOUISVILLE, KY - (19 Jul 2017) A Russell County, Kentucky, resident and former teacher, convicted of a crime involving the sexual exploitation of a minor, was sentenced in United States District Court yesterday, by District Judge Greg N. Stivers, to serve 60 months in prison, followed by a ten year period of supervised release and register as a sex offender in the Commonwealth of Kentucky, announced United States Attorney John E. Kuhn, Jr. There is no parole in the federal prison system.
"This is a horrific crime that can shake an entire community, especially when the perpetrator is a trusted teacher," stated U.S. Attorney Kuhn. "Safeguarding our most vulnerable citizens is among the most significant priorities of my Office and the Department of Justice."
According to the factual basis presented in the case, Jeffrey McGaha, 49, of Russell Springs, Kentucky, admitted to attempting to obtain child pornography between September 23, 2012, and September 5, 2014. McGaha used a cellular telephone and various social media applications to attempt to receive pornographic materials from a minor engaging in sexually explicit conduct. McGaha engaged in this conduct while in Russell County, Kentucky and other places.
Assistant United States Jo E. Lawless prosecuted the case. The Russell Springs Police Department conducted the investigation.
