Fulton Resident Pleads in Exploitation Case

FULTON, Miss. (Press Release) — A Fulton resident is going to prison for child exploitation, announced Attorney General Jim Hood today.

James Mark House, 47, of Fulton, entered an open plea of guilty Thursday, before Circuit Court Judge Paul Funderburk, to two counts of child exploitation after being found in possession of child pornography.

The Judge sentenced House to 40 years with 35 years suspended leaving five years to serve with five years of post-release supervision. He was also ordered to pay a $1,000 fine and a $1,000 assessment to the children’s trust fund. He must also register as a sex offender.

“This case originated from a cyber-tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children where it was reported that someone had uploaded child pornography to a Tumblr account,” said Attorney General Hood.

The case was handled by the Attorney General’s Cyber Crime Unit with prosecution handled by Special Assistant Attorney General Brandon Ogburn.
