A 56-year-old man formerly from Greene County who had an online relationship with a 13-year-old girl and possessed child pornography was sentenced this morning to 66 months in prison.

U.S. District Judge Norman K. Moon sentenced Gary Lee Rimmer during a hearing this morning in Charlottesville’s federal court. Rimmer previously pleaded guilty to possession of child pornography and distribution of child pornography.

Authorities have said Rimmer pretended to be a 20-year-old man named Jason. According to court documents, he originally thought the 13-year-old girl was 18 years old, but he later learned her real age and kept the relationship going. Authorities also found images of the girl with sexual items that Rimmer had previously mailed to her.

Andrea Lantz Harris, the assistant federal public defender representing Rimmer, said in court that her client was feeling lonely and old when he created the false MySpace profile.
