Warwick Township man to serve up to 25 years in prison on child pornography charges
LANCASTER COUNTY, Pa.– A Warwick Township man is set to serve up to 25 years in prison for sharing a viewing child pornography via the mobile app, Kik Messenger.
James Feaster Jr., 30, will serve 12½ to 25 years in prison, according to the terms of a plea agreement after he pleaded guilty to several felony counts of disseminating child pornography and criminal use of a cellphone.
Last year, State Police received a tip from an out-of-state law enforcement agency about file sharing attached to an IP address owned by Feaster.
Police were able to determine that Feaster was sharing and viewing photos and videos via a Kik Messenger chat room.
In February, police executed a search warrant at Feaster’s home, and seized an iPhone.
Feaster admitted to police that he used the device to view and share child pornography for months.
He also has a prior conviction and served a prison term on previous child pornography charges.
Now, he will serve time.
