Jason Jay Mills faces six years in prison after he caught the attention of the Department of Homeland Security when he accessed child pornography from a website based in Italy.

John Kelligan is Special Agent in Charge, leading investigations from the department's Philadelphia office.

"These Crimes are a global crime. Obviously when it involves the internet and transferring of pictures and other media through the internet, it touches all areas around the world," says Kelligan.

He says international crimes of this nature get a high priority.

"A crime against a child, it's in my opinion the most serious type of investigation we can conduct. And we have to do it collaboratively, quickly to ensure that no further child become victimized," Kelligan says.

At the time of his arrest, Mills had more that 40-thousand pornographic images stored on his computer.

Mills has been in custody since his arrest in November of 2012.
