PELAHATCHIE, MS (WLBT) - A 35-year-old man was sentenced to 21 years in prison for producing child pornography Friday.

Kevin Douglas Jenkins, of Pelahatchie, was charged after a minor child came forward and told what Jenkins did.

A forensic examination of his electronic devices and email showed videos of Jenkins engaged in sexually explicit conduct with a minor child.

In November of 2018, Jenkins was indicted by a federal grand jury. On January 25, 2019 he pled guilty to two counts of producing child pornography.

“Producing child pornography is a serious crime that preys on our most vulnerable citizens,” said FBI Special Agent in Charge Freeze. “If you are viewing, sharing or producing this kind of material, I encourage you to seek professional help, otherwise you could end up in prison like Mr. Jenkins.”
