San Diego ICAC Task Force Investigation Puts Repeat Child Sex Offender Away for 10 Years!

Nicholas James Ferguson was sentenced this week in federal court in San Diego to serve 130 months in federal prison to be followed by 10 years of supervision upon release for pleading guilty to receipt of child pornography, according to United States Attorney Laura Duffy.

Ferguson had previously been convicted of a sex offense involving a 9-year-old child and was a registered sex offender during the time in which he knowingly received child sexual abuse images over the Internet, according to court documents.

An investigation by the San Diego Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force (ICAC) brought this case forward whose members include local, state and federal law enforcement agencies.  For additional information regarding ICAC, please visit

“This sentence sends a message that recidivist child sex offenders, including those who continue to sexually exploit children through child pornography, will not be tolerated in this community,” stated United States Attorney Duffy.
