Lancaster County Man Indicted On Child Pornography Charges
PHILADELPHIA – Jeremy Hachey, 23, of Lititz, PA, was charged today by Indictment with receipt and possession of child pornography, announced United States Attorney Zane David Memeger.
If convicted the defendant faces a mandatory minimum sentence of five years in prison, with a maximum possible sentence of 40 years, mandatory minimum of five years of supervised release, a possible fine, and $10,200 special assessment.
This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice.
