Man enters plea on pornography charge

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - A Harpers Ferry, W.Va., man pleaded guilty Monday in U.S. District Court to a child pornography charge.

Jason David Mahoney, 26, no address available, entered the plea to one count of an indictment charging him with knowing attempted receipt of child pornography, U.S. Attorney Sharon L. Potter said.


According to Potter, Mahoney allegedly mailed two separate orders for DVDs or videos which contained child pornography between March 12 and April 30.

The materials were delivered to Mahoney's home on May 31 and retrieved through a search warrant, Potter said in a news release.

Mahoney is free on bond awaiting sentencing. If convicted, he faces a term of five to 20 years and a fine of $250,000.

The case was carried through as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative designed to protect children from exploitation and abuse.
