Convicted of Producing Child Porn, Elk Grove Man Sentenced to 22 Years in Federal Prison



July 11, 2018 | 

At a sentencing hearing yesterday at U.S. District Court in Sacramento, an Elk Grove man was sentenced to 22 years in prison for production of child pornography. Alexander Jordan Miller, 22, of Elk Grove, California was sentenced by U.S. District Judge John A. Mendez following his guilty plea last September.  

Evidence in the case showed that starting in 2015 Miller contacted his victims via social media often using false identities and persuade his juvenile victims to send him nude photos of themselves involved in a variety of sexual activities. As Miller obtained the images, he threatened his victims with a variety of retaliatory measures if they did not provide more material. 

Miller victimized 12 minors, with the youngest being 11 at the time of the crime.  

“Miller was a social media predator who spent hours searching for victims who were old enough to know how to use social media, but young enough to be susceptible to his extortion scheme," U.S. Attorney McGregor W. Scott said. "Rather than physical force, he used fear to compel girls to create the videos he demanded. 

This case was the product of an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Brian A. Fogerty prosecuted the case. This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse.
