Prison Sentence for Child Pornography

David Nathaniel Mott, 40, of North Fort Myers, was sentenced to 36 months in prison followed by 60 months of Sex Offender Probation, for nine counts of Possession of Child
Pornography. He must also now register as a Sex Offender.

In September 2019, the Lee County Sheriff’s Office was notified by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children of a tip that a specific IP address had uploaded an image of child pornography. Detectives investigated and it led them to the Mott residence.

The defendant was questioned and admitted viewing and obtaining images of child pornography. Detectives took custody of his laptop computer and cell phone. A search warrant for the digital forensic processing of the devices was then obtained and Illegal sexual images of children were found on the defendant’s computer.

The State Attorney’s Office Special Victims Unit then joined the investigation and an arrest warrant for Mott was issued. He was taken into custody by the Lee County Sheriff’s Office.
Assistant State Attorney Christine Cummins prosecuted the case.
