SEX OFFENDER ARRESTED ON CHILD PORN CHARGES

A Jacksonville sex offender was arrested Thursday on a charge of possession of child pornography, according to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and prison and court records.

John Michael Fleehart, 39, of the 5700 block of Brannon Avenue on the Westside was jailed on $50,000 bail.

FDLE Computer Crime Center and Jacksonville authorities began the investigation in May after they saw videos of child pornography being shared over the Internet. The investigation revealed the child pornography was downloaded from a computer at Fleehart's home, the FDLE said.

Fleehart served several years for two attempted sexual batteries of a victim younger than 12 in 1992.

Then he failed to comply with the sex offender registry in 2004, and in 2005 he was arrested after a woman reported a man peeping into her bedroom window. Fleehart did about two more years for those offenses, according to court and prison records.
