Repeat sexual offender faces 25 years

Chico man had sexually explicit video of toddler

On Monday (Oct. 3), a local man was found guilty by a federal jury of receipt and distribution of child pornography and conspiracy to sexually exploit a child.

Jesse Davenport (pictured), 41, was on parole in September 2013 when a parole agent seized a memory card from his phone during a search, acting U.S. Attorney Phillip Talbert said in a press release. The card contained a video of a woman performing sex acts on a 3-year-old girl. Angela Martin, from Connecticut, admitted to conspiring with Davenport, aka Draco Flama, to create the video. He then sent the video to a third party.

Davenport was found guilty and, because of prior offenses, faces a minimum sentence of 25 years in prison. Davenport, who had a prior offense in Kansas, was arrested in Chico in 2010 for intercourse, sodomy and oral copulation with a 17-year-old girl.
