According to ICE files, Joseph Patrick Mosher, 49, has been indicted on child exploitation charges.

Jacksonville Man Gets 12 in Federal Prison for Child Sex Abuse Videos
Christopher Michael Picher, a 16 year-old Florida resident, has been sentenced to 12 years and seven months in federal prison for downloading images and videos which contained child sex abuse. He was also sentenced to a lifetime of supervised release and has been registered as a sex offender.

His smartphone had 15 videos and 1,486 child porn images.
The investigation was done early in 2018 and led to the predator’s arrest.
FBI Special Agent Charles P. Spencer of the Jacksonville Division was quoted as saying, “This sentence should serve as a warning to those who seek to exploit children. The FBI Jacksonville Division and out law enforcement partners will stop at nothing to identify child predators, and seek truth and justice for their victims.”
