Prison term of 7-14 years for local woman who possessed child porn
WARSAW — A Silver Lake woman was sentenced Monday in Wyoming County Court to up to 14 years in state prison for possessing child pornography.
Jordan McMurty, who has an extensive criminal history that includes one stint in state prison, pleaded guilty in May to use of a child in a sexual performance, a felony punishable by up to 15 years in prison.
She also pleaded guilty to third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell and felony driving while high on drugs.
Monday, Judge Michael Mohun sentenced McMurtry, 35, to seven to 14 years for the child porn conviction, eight years for the drug conviction and 16 months to four years for driving on drugs.
The sentences will run concurrently, Mohun ordered.
Police said she was high on drugs again and possessed meth and drug paraphernalia.
A search of her phone revealed that McMurtry had taken obscene photographs of a child.
That led to a multi-count indictment against McMurtry in March, 19 counts: five counts of using a child in a sexual performance, five counts of promoting a sexual performance by a child, two counts of third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell, aggravated unlicensed operation, two counts of felony driving while impaired by drugs, two counts of criminal use of drug paraphernalia, license plate not affixed and unauthorized stickers.
McMurtry has an extensive criminal history.
She has been arrested and charged with driving while high on drugs three times since 2014. She served a state prison term for a 2019 conviction for manufacturing meth and has been arrested numerous times for shoplifting and misdemeanor drug possession.
The 2019 meth conviction came after she and three others were charged with manufacturing meth in a stairwell and balcony in two residences in the village of Warsaw.
