A former Scott Airforce Base Airman, has been sentenced to 78 months in prison for two counts of distributing child pornography. A judge handed down the sentence to Jace Faugno, 25, of Paducah, Kentucky, which includes 5 years of supervised release. Faugno first came to the attention of law enforcement in September 2018, when a joint undercover investigation by the Air Force Office of Special Investigations (OSI) and the FBI caught him sending child pornography over Kik, a popular cell phone messaging app. During chat discussions with two different undercover agents, Faugno sent them videos involving a prepubescent girl.Faugno also solicited the agents to send him videos of child pornography and expressed an interest in meeting up with one agent to engage in sex acts with the undercover agent’s fictitious prepubescent daughter. Faugno pled guilty to the charges in 2019. At his sentencing hearing, Faugno argued that his chats were merely a fantasy that he never intended to act upon.
