Ft. Mitchell Man Sentenced to 8+ Years for Child Pornography

A Fort Mitchell man was sentenced to 97 months in federal prison after pleading guilty to child pornography charges.

Jeffrey W. Harney, 53, was sentenced Thursday in U.S. District Court by Judge David Bunning.

In March, Harney pleaded guilty to receipt of child pornography.

According to case records, Harney was caught during a federal investigation of a private website called The Playpen.

Police executed a search warrant at his home and discovered 3,640 images, including 1,199 videos, of child pornography on Harney's computer equipment.

Harney must serve at least 85 percent of his sentence before being eligible for parole. He will then be on 15 years of supervised federal probation and must register as a sex offender.
