A former US Army major has been sentenced to 30 years in prison for producing child porn and trying to share it online.

Jason Musgrove of Grovetown, Georgia, was given the lengthy prison sentence after pleading guilty to a production of child pornography charge, prosecutors said in a statement Monday.

A judge also ordered Musgrove to pay a restitution of $9,000 to his victims and to register as a sex offender.

At the time of his arrest in December 2019, the 41-year-old was an integrated threat operations officer assigned to the Army Cyber Joint Headquarters at Fort Gordon.

Musgrove admitted to FBI investigators he produced child porn with the intention of posting it online, prosecutors said.

He’s facing administrative separation from the Army.

“It is beyond comprehension that someone in a position sworn to protect American citizens would take advantage and traumatize vulnerable children,” said Chris Hacker, special agent in charge of FBI Atlanta.
