LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — A Kentucky man who had sex crime convictions commuted by former Gov. Matt Bevin last year is now facing a federal charge of producing child pornography.
The new charge against Dayton Jones stems from the events that led to sodomy and other charges against him in 2014. He was a few years into a 15-year sentence on those convictions when Bevin commuted the sentence last year.
The U.S. Attorney’s office in Louisville says the 24-year-old Jones has been arrested on one charge of producing child sex abuse material.
The charge carries a minimum of 15 years in prison if convicted.
