Jeffrey B. Gleason - Convicted Pedophile - Repeat Sex Offender

A convicted pedophile admitted today that he used a computer at his church to download sexually explicit photos of children.

Jeffrey B. Gleason, 45, of Mt. Morris, Livingston County, pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court to knowingly possessing or attempting to possess of child pornography.

Gleason is expected to receive a prison term of at least 10 years when Judge Charles J. Siragusa sentences him Aug. 29.

Gleason, who was jailed for one year after being convicted in 2001 of sexually abusing a 13-year-old child, received permission last year from Livonia Community Church, which he attended, to use a church computer to research job prospects.

But on July 2, 2007, the church contacted the Livingston County Sheriff’s Department after a church member using the computer found the names of Web sites that appeared to contain child pornography, according to court documents.

In an interview three days later with sheriff’s investigators, Gleason admitted he had used the computer to gain access to Web sites that contained explicit photos of girls younger than 12 engaged in sexual activity with adults.
