Jena Man Sentenced to 97 Months For Receiving Child Pornography


A Jena man was sentenced last week to more than eight years in prison for downloading hundreds of images and videos of child pornography.

Shane Jeansonne, 30, of Jena, La., was sentenced Friday on one count of receiving child pornography. He was also sentenced to five years of supervised release and is required to register as a sex offender. According to the December 15, 2017 guilty plea, law enforcement agents identified Jeansonne as downloading and distributing child pornography online. Agents searched his home on March 18, 2015 and found numerous computers and storage devices containing videos and images of child pornography. Agents then arrested Jeansonne, and he admitted to downloading child pornography and sharing the material online. After agents conducted a forensic examination of his electronic devices, they found hundreds of images and videos of child pornography.

Homeland Security Investigations and the Louisiana Attorney General’s Office conducted the investigation.
