Registered Sacramento Sex Offender Receives 33 Year Sentence For Receiving Child Pornography

January 18, 2018 | 

A man who was convicted of receiving up to 2,000 images of child pornography learned today that he will spend at least 33 years in prison. Jeffrey Miles Hayes, 55, of Sacramento, was sentenced today by Judge Troy L. Nunley in U.S. District Court in Sacramento. 

According to the evidence introduced at his jury trial, Hayes came to the attention of law enforcement through two related tips from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children regarding an individual who was posting images of children engaged in sexually explicit conduct to a social media blog. An Internet Protocol (IP) address used to access the blog site was registered to Hayes’s home. 

A search of Hayes' residence led to the discovery of an iPad containing a messaging application that Hayes used to send and receive images of children engaged in sexually explicit conduct. Hayes had over 2,000 images of children engaged in sexually explicit acts, including images showing sadistic/masochistic abuse and the sexual abuse of an infant, as well as links to cloud storage accounts containing child pornography. 

Prior to this conviction, Hayes had been previously convicted in the Sacramento County Superior Court relating to distribution of child pornography and was a registered sex offender.

This case was investigated by the Sacramento Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force, a federally and state-funded task force managed by the Sacramento Sheriff’s Department with agents from federal, state, and local agencies.
