CAMDEN, N.J. (KYW Newsradio) — An Ohio man doing time in federal prison at Fort Dix for possession of child porn has had 13 more years added to his sentence. He’s among eight inmates accused of getting additional pornographic material while incarcerated.

Jordan Allen, 31, of Plain City, Ohio, was among seven inmates who admitted to using cellphones, micro SD cards and internet access in the facility to obtain and distribute the contraband.

Three of his colleagues, including 47-year-old Brian McKay of Brookhaven, Delaware County, have already been resentenced in Camden federal court. Three more await their sentencing hearing, and the final defendant is awaiting trial.

The eight men were arrested after two raids at the Fort Dix prison dating back to April of last year. They hail from towns in Michigan, Virginia, Tennessee and Massachusetts.

Allen’s defense attorney did not return a call seeking comment. The U.S. attorney for New Jersey declined a request for an interview. And the Federal Bureau of Prisons was unable to respond to a request for an interview in a timely manner.
