Chief United States District Judge Timothy J. Corrigan has sentenced Columbus Donavan Jeffrey, 44, Jacksonville to 60 years in federal prison for photographing his sexual assaults of a child and distributing those pictures to others using the internet.
Jeffrey was also ordered to serve a lifetime term of supervised release, register as a sex offender, and pay $24,000 in restitution to child victims.
Jeffrey had pleaded guilty on December 10, 2020.
According to court documents, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) received information from a company that hosts an online social messaging application (app). Specifically, on May 3, 2019, a user named “hideme1977,” subsequently identified as Jeffrey, used the app to upload several photos to the internet.
These photos, taken by Jeffrey, depicted him sexually abusing an 11-year-old child. NCMEC referred this matter to the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office (JSO) for investigation.
On October 3, 2019, JSO detectives and other officers executed a search warrant at Jeffrey’s residence, where he admitted he had used the “hideme1977” user name on the app.
JSO detectives were also able to identify and locate the child shown in the photos, who stated that Jeffrey had sexually abused the child on at least three separate occasions in 2019.
JSO conducted a forensic examination of Jeffrey’s cellphone which revealed: images of the same child being sexually abused by Jeffrey on two other dates in 2019; online messages showing Jeffrey used the internet to share the sexual assault photos with others; and that Jeffrey maintained a collection of 635 images and 57 videos depicting the sexual abuse of other minors, including several depicting the rape of infants and toddlers.
“Predators who exploit innocent children are among the most evil criminals in society, and the acts committed by this defendant are among the most egregious that we have investigated,” said Rachel L. Rojas, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI Jacksonville Division.
“This case proves that the FBI Jacksonville Division is fully committed to holding child predators accountable for their actions, and we remain dedicated to ensuring that criminals like him cannot bring harm to the most vulnerable members of our communities ever again. We are thankful for the partnership of the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office in the relentless effort to seek justice for these victims. Be assured our work will not end here.”

What is wrong with these sick fucks!!!!!! Its disgusting and they film it or record it??? These POS’s need their penis cut off plus their hands. No matter what these so called shrinks have to say these fucks will NEVER be cured. So lose the dick and the hands and well no more SICK fucks!!!
I agree but their penises off and their hands
They shouldn’t be allowed to share our oxygen… How can any look at a child and feel that way??? They make me sick and 60 years is light imo. Let the dad and uncles have 30 minutes alone with him. There babies and any adult that thinks it’s a good idea to do these things to them should go to hell.
Just let the inmates know what he did and that will be the last time we will ever hear his name again, Don’t put him in Protective Custody, put him in Population: The End!! From Commander W.
