Jimmy Walter Rollins
Jimmy Rollins, 44, of Palmer, Tennessee, entered a plea of guilty on February 5, 2013, in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Tennessee at Chattanooga, to producing child pornography. Sentencing has been set for May 6, 2013 in the United States District Court in Chattanooga. Rollins faces a minimum term of 25 years up to 50 years in prison, a fine of up to $250,000 and supervised release from five years to life. In February 2012, an undercover investigation by the Winchester Police Department identified Rollins as a person who used the internet to traffic in pornographic images of children. A search of his home in May 2012 revealed equipment used in the production of child pornography, and multiple photographic images and videos of Rollins engaged in sexual activity with a known minor. All the child pornographic scenes were set in a bedroom that can be recognized as Rollins’. On November 27, 2012, a 9-count indictment, which included the aforementioned charge, was returned against Rollins by a federal grand jury sitting in Chattanooga. This indictment was the result of an ongoing investigation by the Winchester Police Department, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. John P. MacCoon, Assistant United States Attorney represented the United States.
