Former Scott AFB Airman, Jace Faugno Sentenced to Prison For Distributing Child Pornography
East St. Louis, IS (STL.News) Jace Faugno, 25, of Paducah, Kentucky, has been sentenced to 78 months in
prison for two counts of distributing child pornography. Chief United States District Judge Nancy
J. Rosenstengel handed down the sentence, which includes 5 years of supervised release.
Faugno first came to the attention of law enforcement in September 2018, when a joint undercover
investigation by the Air Force Office of Special Investigations (OSI) and the FBI
caught him sending child pornography over Kik, a popular cell phone messaging application. At the
time, Faugno was living in St. Louis, Missouri, and serving as an active duty Senior Airman at
Scott Air Force Base in St. Clair County, Illinois.
During chat discussions with two different undercover agents, Faugno sent them each a video
depicting a prepubescent girl being raped by an adult male. Faugno also solicited the agents to
send him videos of child pornography and expressed an interest in meeting up with one agent to
engage in sex acts with the undercover agent’s fictitious prepubescent daughter.
