Grayson Man, James Armes Sentenced to 50 Years for Possession of Child Pornography

United States District Judge Joseph H. McKinley sentenced James D. Armes to 50 years of imprisonment on Friday, and a lifetime of supervised release, for multiple counts of production and distribution of child pornography, and possession of child pornography, announced United States Attorney Russell M. Coleman.

“The basic duty of government is to protect our kids, in this this case prosecuting a clear threat and sending him to federal prison for five decades,” said U.S. Attorney Russell Coleman.

Armes, 37, of Millwood, Kentucky, in Grayson County, was indicted on five counts of production of child pornography, two counts of distribution of child pornography, and one count of possession of child pornography on May 9, 2018. On December 10, 2018, Armes admitted before the Court his guilt on all counts.

According to a Sentencing Memo, on or about October 16, 2017, and November 28, 2017, Armes used his cellular phone to create numerous images and videos of the sexual exploitation of two children. Armes made sexual contact with Jane Doe, a minor female less than 1-year old, numerous times. He also took several pictures of the genitals of John Doe, a minor male under 5 years old. Armes was 36-years old at the time of his criminal conduct. Because of a prior rape conviction he faced a mandatory minimum sentence of 25 years imprisonment.

This case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Spencer McKiness, and investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Grayson County Sheriff’s Department.
