frostmanHAMPTON, Va. – A man has been sentenced to 16 years in prison on Wednesday for child porn, according to the Department of Justice.

47-year-old Jerome Paul Frostman was sentenced for receipt of child pornography.

Frostman pleaded guilty on Aug. 8, 2016. Court documents said Frostman was distributing child pornography using a peer-to-peer network.

After a search warrant was executed at his residence, Frostman said he did access child porn from his laptop and stated he “gets a thrill” out of viewing it.

During an interview with law enforcement Frostman confessed to downloading and receiving over 1,000 images of child pornography, in addition to previously sexually assaulting a child on multiple occasions.
