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.”
