A Cass County man will spend over 12 years behind bars after he was sentenced for distributing child pornography.
According to a release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office, 33-year-old Jared Ross Boswell pleaded guilty last August, and was sentenced yesterday in the U.S. District Court in Bemidji.
According to Boswell’s guilty plea, from April to September 2018, Boswell used the internet to send obscene materials and distribute sexually explicit images. Boswell once sent an image depicting child sexual abuse to a minor, who he knew to be 10 years old.
The Red Lake Department of Public Safety, the Mille Lacs Tribal Police Department, the Bemidji Police Department, the Hubbard County Sheriff’s Office, the Minnesota BCA and the FBI conducted the investigation.
Boswell, after his 145 months in a federal prison, will spend an additional 15 years on supervised release.
