An HIV positive Florida man has been sentenced to 60 years in federal prison, after admitting to assaulting an 11-year-old child, and uploading the sick images of the abuse to the internet.
Columbus Donovan Jeffrey, 44, of Jacksonville, Florida, was arrested in 2019, after the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) were alerted to his online exploits, court documents detail. On May 3rd 2019, a user known as “hideme1977,” later identified as Jeffrey, used Tumblr to upload various photos to the internet taken by him, showing the sexual abuse of an 11-year-old child, of which he was the perpetrator. Florida detectives later discovered that the child had been abused by Jeffrey, who is HIV Positive, on at least three separate occasions in 2019.
The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office conducted a forensic examination of Jeffrey’s phone, which not only revealed further images of his sexual abuse of the child in question, but that he also maintained an extensive collection of child pornography, including 635 images and 57 videos depicting the sexual abuse of other minors, with several of them depicting the rape of infants and toddlers.
Reports at the time of his arrest revealed that Jeffrey’s home was apparently a “neighbourhood hangout” for kids. Phontella Reeves, whose son would “routinely play” at his home, said that Jeffrey had asked her out of the blue if her son could spend the night, to which she emphatically refused. “I felt some type of way, I swear I felt some type of way,” Reeves said. “Now, I know that [expletive] was true in my heart. My heart was telling me something wasn’t right.”
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
