Former Fernandina Beach Boy Scout leader facing child porn charges

FERNANDINA BEACH, Fla. – A business owner and former Boy Scout leader in Fernandina Beach is facing 13 counts of child porn possession after an investigation by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.

Jason Thomas Roberts, 45, is the owner of JTR Leadership Training and co-owner of Key Fitness Personal Training.

FDLE agents arrested Roberts Thursday morning on 13 counts of possession of child sexual abuse material.

The investigation of Roberts began on Jan. 14, after FDLE agents received multiple CyberTips from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. The tips alerted agents to an online address sharing files depicting possible child sexual abuse material.

Still images and videos discovered included children in sexual situations with adults and other children. Two files were confirmed by NCMEC to include children identified by law enforcement in previous investigations.

Nassau County Sheriff’s Office assisted FDLE in this case.
