A Tennessee man who dressed up as the iconic superhero for a children's hospital was sentenced Monday to 105 years in prison for the production and transportation of child pornography.

Jarratt A. Turner, of Nashville, took sexually explicit images and videos on multiple occasions of a toddler boy and girl he babysat, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Tennessee. He had befriended the two families of the respective children and babysat the kids between October 2014 and May 2015. 

Turner molested the children on camera and distributed the images to others online, authorities said. 

"I loooooove little ones. I love my little ones the most and hope you love them too,” he wrote on the perverted photo-sharing website, according to WSMV in Nashville. The name of the website used to distribute photos was not released.

 

 

In a failed attempt to trick the cops, he only used public Wi-Fi networks to distribute the child pornography, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office. Turner’s use of public Wi-Fi backfired by allowing police to track him down more quickly.

Police said that during the time he was abusing the children, he dressed up as Spiderman to wash windows at a local children's hospital. Authorities believe he was attempting to gain access to more potential victims. 

“Children of this community are a little safer today with this sexual predator behind bars,” Assistant Special Agent in Charge Robert Hammer, who oversees Homeland Security Investigation’s operations in Tennessee, said in a statement. “The fact he would film, and then upload to the internet, videos of himself molesting an infant and toddler, then take elaborate steps to conceal his activities, represents the extreme danger he posed to the community.”

Turner was charged in June 2015 with 16 counts of production of both child pornography and transportation of child pornography. He pleaded guilty in March 2017.
