A Uniontown man who admitted to having more than 1,181 images and videos of child pornography on his home computers was sentenced to serve more than three years in prison Monday.

Jason A. Early, 41, was sentenced to three years plus one month in prison, to be followed by 10 years of supervised release after his conviction of possession of materials depicting the sexual exploitation of minors, according to U.S. Attorney Scott W. Brady.

Early was sentenced by Senior U.S. District Judge Donetta Ambrose in U.S. District Court in Pittsburgh

Homeland Security was conducting a nationwide investigation in October 2017 and was led to Early’s home, according to information presented to the court.

Officers reported that they obtained and executed a warrant at Early’s residence and seized his computers. A forensic examination of the devices discovered 1,181 images and videos of child pornography, including images and videos of toddlers, according to Brady.

Early admitted to viewing child pornography through peer-to-peer programs and to storing it on his computer.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
