Former Marshall football player sentenced for child pornography

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. — A former Marshall University football player on Monday received a 90-month prison sentence in connection to sending child pornography.

Jeremiah Taylor, 32, previously admitted to sending several videos of children engaging in sexual acts to an undercover FBI agent. He also admitted to asking the agent for photographs of the agent’s purported 9-year-old daughter.

Taylor was active on the mobile messaging application Kirk, in which he used his account to store child pornography.

Taylor will also have to complete 15 years of supervised release after his prison sentence and pay restitution.

Taylor was a defensive end for the Marshall football program from 2010 to 2013.
