A Peoria man is sentenced for his guilty plea to a charge of distribution of child pornography.

Jacob Burmood, 24, was sentenced to 30 years in prison in federal court in Peoria. Burmood’s prison term will be followed by a lifetime term of supervised release.

Burmood pleaded guilty to the charge Jan. 25.

Officers executed search warrants on Burmood, his residence and various computers and electronic media Oct. 14, 2015.

A forensic analysis of Burmood’s computer revealed more than 3,000 images and approximately 200 videos of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct with other minors and adults. The analysis also showed Burmood had distributed the material to others through an email account.

Burmood is a registered sex offender as a result of a prior conviction for a sex crime in Illinois in 2011. He has remained in the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service since his arrest in October 2015.
