POCATELLO – A former Idaho State University student goes to jail after filming himself sexually assaulting an 8-year-old boy in a campus washroom.
Andrew John Jemmett, 21, was sentenced Tuesday to 25 years in federal prison after pleading guilty to producing child pornography. As part of the sentence, US District Judge B. Lynn Winmill ordered Jemmett to spend the rest of his life on probation after serving his prison sentence.

Jemmett pleaded guilty in November in exchange for prosecutors not seeking any additional charges against him.
In April 2019, Jemmett filmed himself raping the boy in a public bathroom. Jemmett then agreed to sell the video for $ 150 to at least one other person through Snapchat. The person who purchased the video sent the money to Jemmett through Paypal, according to court documents.
ISU officials confirmed to EastIdahoNews.com that Jemmett was a college student from fall 2017 to spring 2019.

After leaving school, Jemmett moved to Las Vegas, Nevada, where police arrested him for child pornography found on his iPhone. Investigators contacted authorities in Idaho when they learned that the video was taken in Pocatello.
Once released from prison, Jemmett cannot have any contact with minors without the approval of his probation officer. He will also have restrictions on where he can live, work and have Internet access. Jemmett will also have to register as a sex offender.
