A Rockford man was sentenced to 65 years in prison as a result of being found guilty of sexual assault of a child and child pornography charges.

James Abron, 55, was found guilty of Predatory Criminal Sexual Assault of a Child, three counts of Criminal Sexual Assault and eight counts of Child Pornography after a jury trial in October 2017.

In 2016, a 13-year-old child reported that she had been sexually abused by Abron when she was 11-years-old. Detectives found photographs of the child on Abron’s phone during their investigation.

He’ll also face mandatory supervised release and would have to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.
