A man was sentenced to 10 years in prison this week for downloading child pornography at an East Memphis Best Buy.

In September 2012, John Nesler, 51, used three different computer tablets on display at the Best Buy store at 5821 Poplar to pull up pornographic photographs of female minors, according to information from the office of Edward Stanton, United States Attorney for the Western District of Tennessee.

Nester then took pictures of the images on his cellphone.

On September 10, a Best Buy employee witnessed Nesler downloading the pictures and alerted store managers. They called the Memphis Police Department. Nester was still in the store when police arrived.

Officers arrested Nesler, seized his phone, and the tablets he’d used. Police found about 114 sexually suggestive images of female minors that had been taken between September 3 through September 10. A search of the tablets found that they had been used to search for child pornography.

Nester had been convicted in 2007 for downloading and viewing child pornography. He had been sentenced to five years in prison and 10 year supervised release for the offense.

Charges from the 2012 Best Buy incident netted Nesler 10 years in prison and a lifetime of supervision.

In the end, the slayer was captured after a wild chase by a posse of ordinary citizens. After his arrest, George Howard Putt told reporters, “I’d do it all again.” The murder spree began on the afternoon of August 14, 1969 ...
