BLOOMFIELD, NJ - Retired Bloomfield NJ Firefighter, Donald Jervis, 52, has been charged with child pornography possession in Kenosha WI according to Assistant District Rosamaria Delgado. Jervis was formally charged on Oct. 25 with 17 counts of possession of child pornography and four counts of attempted sexual exploitation of a child.
Kenosha Police were alerted by Jarvis' internet service provider that there was a possibility that he was attempting to distribute child pornography. Police executed a search warrant of his home on Oct. 20. In the ensuing interview with police, Jervis admitted that he had attempted to email videos and images of child pornography to his girlfriend who lives in another state. Jervis is married with children.
Details in the complaint indicate that Jervis admitted looking at child pornography and sending images for approximately five years. Images found on his laptop computer show children as young as two to four years old being sexually assaulted by adults.
For each of the 17 counts of possession of child pornography, Jervis faces up to 25 years in prison and fines of up to $100,000. For the four counts of attempted sexual exploitation of a child, he faces up to 20 years in prison and fines of up to $50,000.
Jervis spent 25 years on the Bloomfield Fire Department before retiring in 2015. He moved to Kenosha in July 2015, and bought his home in August 2015. Public records indicate he was receiving a pension at the time the complaint was filed.
