Orlando sex offender found with child porn sentenced to 10 years

A 43-year-old man who was previously convicted of being in possession of child sex abuse materials, resulting in a sex offender designation, will spend over ten years behind bars for a separate conviction of the same offense.

Jeffrey Grant Cruikshank, 43, was sentenced to ten years in federal prison by U.S. Middle District of Florida Judge Paul G. Byron this week for possessing child pornographic materials. Cruikshank pled guilty on September 7.

According to court records, law enforcement authorities opened an investigation into Cruikshank in 2022 after multiple CyberTips were received across various platforms.

Federal Bureau of Investigation agents that investigated Cruikshank found depictions of child sex abuse material on electronic devices that he owned. During their search, evidence was also found suggesting Cruikshank had been searching for child chat rooms.

Cruikshank was previously convicted for similar actions and has been a registered sex offender since then.

As part of the sentence, Cruikshank had to forfeit a cellphone and GoPro camera that he used to commit the offense.
