Ogden couple charged with watching child porn

An Ogden couple now faces federal charges on allegations the pair view child pornography together. Jason David Lott, 32, has been charged with distribution of child pornography, possession of child pornography, and possession of a firearm and ammunition following a felony conviction. His wife, Camila Mar Bergeson, 22, has been charged with possession of child pornography. Both have pleaded not guilty to the charges levied against them.

According to court documents, the couple were found when an FBI agent conducting an online investigation of a child pornography-sharing computer network managed to track an IP address to the couple's home. The downloaded files allegedly contained sexually explicit images and videos of infants, toddlers, and prepubescent children. Agents obtained a search warrant and seized possession of a computer and other devices from the couple on March 16. During the execution of the search warrant agents also found a 12-gauge shotgun and ammunition.

According to prosecutors Lott, a registered sex offender who was convicted of sexual exploitation of a minor in 2009, admitted to having the sharing program on his computer, and to using a program designed to wipe his computer clean of any evidence once a week. Prosecutors also say that Bergeson admitted to looking at videos and images of child pornography on the computer with her husband, saying they viewed the images and videos every other week for the past six months before erasing the images.

A jury trial is scheduled to take place in May. Lott remains in custody, while Bergeson is on supervised release with a requirement she find a full-time job. If convicted, Lott faces 15-40 years in prison, Bergeson is looking at up to 20 years in prison for her part.
