Daycare worker gets 30 years for producing child porn with 18-month-old

lmnlOKLAHOMA CITY — A man from Oklahoma City was sentenced Wednesday to 30 years in federal prison for producing child pornography which depicted an 18-month-old toddler whom he babysat.

According to court records, in September 2015, undercover HSI special agents downloaded child pornography via Kik, a smartphone instant-messaging application, from a man in Christchurch, New Zealand. After New Zealand authorities located the man, forensic analysis of his Kik account revealed that he had exchanged child pornography with a Kik user with the screen name “TheLoverOfTheLittle.”

HSI special agents in the United States traced this Kik screen name to Jason Marc Janatsch, 26, of Oklahoma City, who worked at a local daycare center. Janatsch also freelanced as a babysitter who advertised his services on www.sitter.com and www.care.com.

Janatsch was indicted by a federal grand jury Jan. 6, 2016. He had a plea hearing Feb. 29 before U.S. District Judge Stephen P. Friot. At this hearing Janatsch admitted that on June 11, 2015, he used a female toddler whom he was babysitting to engage in sexually explicit conduct and took photographs with his iPhone.

Janatsch had used an online babysitting service to gain access to the child. Then Janatsch, using his iPhone, transmitted the photographs to the New Zealand man. According to court records, he also received child pornography from the New Zealand man in return. In sentencing, Judge Friot took into consideration evidence that Janatsch had also molested a 3-year-old girl on a previous occasion and had performed Google searches using queries such as “having sex with a special needs child,” and “how do I adopt a baby.”

After serving his sentence, Janatsch will be required to register as a sex offender and will be on supervised release for life. The court also ordered Janatsch to pay a $ 5,000 special assessment under the Justice For Victims of Trafficking Act of 2015.
