Virginia Man Charged With Child Pornography

Police accuse Jason Laposay of sexually abusing an young girl for two years



    The Power of a Positive Attitude

    A federal grand jury indicted a Virginia man accused of making videos of his explicit sexual activity with a young girl and receiving thousands of pictures of child pornography.

    According to court documents, the Fairfax County Child Abuse hotline received a call claiming 40-year-old Jason Laposay of Burke, Va., was sexually abusing a minor.

    Fairfax County Child Protective Services interviewed the elementary-school-age girl and learned that for more than two years, Laposay allegedly sexually abused her once a week.

    Police said Laposay used a sexual toy on the young victim and showed her pictures of child pornography.

    Fairfax County authorities got a search warrant for Laposay’s home, and on Jan. 25, police found six video files from a laptop that allegedly showed the victim engaging in sexual activity with a man believed to be Laposay. Police believe he created the videos on his iPhone.

    During the search, police also found more than 3,000 images of child pornography, authorities said. Before his arrest, Laposay allegedly smashed a camera and disposed of his iPhone, preventing forensic analysis of those items.

    Laposay was indicted on one count of producing child pornography on April 12. That charge carries a mandatory minimum sentence of 15 years in prison and a maximum of 30 years in prison.

    He was also charged with one count of receipt of child pornography, which carries a mandatory minimum sentence of five years in prison and a maximum of 20 years in prison.

    For his actions in the destruction of evidence, Laposay was charged with two counts of obstruction of justice, which each carry a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison.
