Homeland Security employee indicted on federal child pornography charges

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – A federal grand jury indicted a Homeland Security employee Wednesday on five counts of receiving child pornography.

In a federal criminal complaint filed against Jason W. Durrett, 47, on July 28, the FBI agent investigating the case said Durrett sent clothed photos of a female minor who is believed to be related to him to another person online who gave Durrett sexually explicit images of children, according to federal court records.

The emails demonstrated that the user of an email account associated with Durrett had a sexual interest in children, according to the complaint.

Durrett was booked into the Warren County Regional Jail July 27 and was released on an unsecured $25,000 bond on Aug. 2. As a condition of his bond, he is restricted to home incarceration, may not use any device capable of connecting to the internet and must participate in mental health treatment.
