NORRISTOWN » An Upper Dublin man will be under court supervisio­n for about seven years after he admitted to possessing child pornograph­y.

Jessie Aaron Necochea, 32, of the 200 block of Jackson Avenue, in the Glenside section of the township, was sentenced in Montgomery County Court to 308 days already served to 23 months in the county jail after he pleaded guilty to felony charges of possession of child pornograph­y in connection with incidents that occurred between April and June

of 2021. Necochea received credit for the time he’d been in jail while awaiting court action since June 30, 2021.

Judge Wendy G. Rothstein, who accepted a plea agreement in the case, also ordered Necochea to complete five years’ probation following parole, meaning he will be under court supervisio­n for about seven years. Necochea will be placed under sex offender supervisio­n during the parole and probationa­ry periods.

Additional­ly, Necochea faces a 15-year requiremen­t to report his address to state police in order to comply with Pennsylvan­ia’s Sexual Offender Registrati­on and Notificati­on Act. Necochea also will undergo a psychosexu­al evaluation.

As a condition of the sentence, the judge ordered Necochea to have no contact with minors.

An investigat­ion began in June 2021 when detectives received a CyberTip regarding the uploading and possession of child pornograph­y through an internet address linked to Necochea, according to the arrest affidavit filed by William Walter, a Conshohock­en detective who is cross-designated as a county detective for the purpose of investigat­ing internet crimes against children.

Google Inc. provided April 14 as when Google became aware of the suspected material, court papers indicate. When detectives reviewed the images and videos they determined the material depicted juvenile females in sexual poses or engaged in sexual conduct. Some of the juveniles were about 10 years old, detectives alleged.

Detectives went to Necochea’s residence on June 30 with a search warrant and seized his cellphone. An examinatio­n of the cellphone uncovered about 40 videos or images depicting children under the age of 18 in various stages of nudity or performing sexual acts, according to the criminal complaint.

“Many of these children appeared to be under the age of thirteen,” Walter alleged in court documents.

When confronted by detectives about the material, Necochea admitted to receiving the images and that it “typically occurs when he is under the influence of narcotics,” according to court documents.

Necochea admitted to detectives that he possessed the material for his sexual gratificat­ion.

Other charges of criminal use of a communicat­ion facility and possession of an instrument of crime were dismissed against Necochea as part of the plea agreement.
