WAUKESHA (WITI) — 36-year-old Jermaine Johnson, formerly of Waukesha has been federally indicted for production and possession of child pornography.

Johnson was indicted for two counts of production of child pornography and one count of possession of child pornography.

Count one of the indictment alleges that on or about July 20, 2009, Johnson knowingly produced child pornography which involved a minor female engaging in sexually explicit conduct.

Count two alleges that on or about August 2, 2011, Johnson again knowingly produced child pornography which involved a second minor female engaging in sexually explicit conduct.

Count three of the indictment alleges Johnson possessed child pornography on or about March 15, 2012.

If convicted of production of child pornography, as set forth in count one of the indictment, Johnson faces a minimum of 15 years and a maximum of 30 years’ imprisonment.

If convicted of production of child pornography, as set forth in count two of the indictment, Johnson faces a minimum of 25 years and a maximum of 50 years’ imprisonment.

The charge of possession of child pornography carries a minimum term of imprisonment of 10 years and a maximum of 20 years’ imprisonment.

The higher minimum mandatory term of imprisonment for counts two and three is the result of Johnson’s prior conviction in 2009, for second degree sexual assault.

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 U.S. Department of Justice.
