JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A Palatka man was sentenced Monday to eight years and nine months in prison on federal charges of receiving and possessing child pornography.

Travis Rocky Dixon, 36, was also ordered to serve a 10-year supervision and to register as a sex offender after his prison term, according to a release from the office of U.S. Attorney A. Lee Bentley III.

Dixon was convicted on the charges in November 2013.

In 2011, evidence was introduced which stated two law enforcement officers downloaded videos depicting child pornography from a host computer with an IP address that led to Dixon's residence in Palatka.

On January 18, 2012, a federal search warrant was executed and FBI forensic examiners downloaded video files with titles indicative of child pornography from Dixon's computer.

According to the release, Dixon said he was the primary computer user and admitted to looking at child pornography for about a year.

The release says his computer had at least 64 videos depicting children engaged in sexually explicit conduct and that at least two videos of child pornography were downloaded the morning of January 18, 2012.

The case against Dixon was investigated by the Putnam County Sheriff's Office, the Clewiston Police Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation in Daytona Beach, Miami and Jacksonville. It was brought about as part of Project Safe Childhood.
