HAMMOND | A federal judge has sentenced a Schererville man to 51 months in prison for possessing child pornography.

Matthew Jasek was accused of having more than 4,000 files of child pornography on his computer, according to court records.

Federal authorities began investigating Jasek in August 2012 when a law enforcement officer searching an Internet peer-to-peer sharing network for pornographic images downloaded at least two porn videos depicting children from an IP address traced to Jasek, according to court records. One of the girls in the videos was between 11 and 13 years old.

After a search warrant was executed at his apartment, Jasek told officials he has been interested in child pornography for eight years, according to the complaint. He showed officials a folder on his computer that had thousands of child pornography images.

A court order filed Thursday requires Jasek to serve five years of supervised release upon completion of his prison sentence and he must register as a sex offender. As conditions of his release, Jasek must participate in substance abuse and sex offender counseling programs and must complete sex offender evaluation and testing. He is also ordered not to view any pornography.
