Medford, Ore. - On Wednesday, Jordan Levine entered the courtroom with a somber face, prepared to plea 'No Contest' to all charges against him, adding 90 months to his 75 month sentence.

Levine faced charges of 'Making Visual Recording Sexually Explicit Conduct,' 'Unlawful Manufacturing of Marijuana' and 'Encouraging Sexual Abuse.'

Jackson County Sheriff's Office and local Homeland Security officers began investigating Levine in 2015 after Homeland Security received a cyber-tip about sexually explicit images of children. That tip traced back to Levine.

JCSO was investigating sexual abuse allegations in regards to Levine in December 2015 and joined Homeland Security to complete the investigation and arrest Levine that December.

During the investigation, the agencies encountered nearly 27 pounds of marijuana and related paraphernalia. The agencies discovered the marijuana sales helped fund trips to Thailand and the Philippines for Levine who would go there to gather and take pictures of children in sexually explicit content.
