BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -
Former Coast DJ Robert Jordan Dever, 51, pleaded guilty Monday to two counts of exploitation of a child at the Harrison County Courthouse, according to Second Circuit Court District Attorney Joel Smith.
Dever was the midday announcer on Kicker 108 as 'Bob Dever.' He was also an announcer on Z-95 FM as 'Jay Roberts.'
Once Dever accepted his plea, Circuit Court Judge Roger Clark ordered a pre-sentence investigation.
Dever's case stemmed after Biloxi city workers found written messages in the men's public bathroom at the softball complex at Hiller Park in Biloxi. The messages asked individuals, who had an interest in sharing children for sex, to contact him.
Dever was arrested on August 4, 2012 and was terminated from Coast Radio Group shortly after that arrest.
Biloxi police were contacted and an investigation was started.
Investigators also found that child pornography was downloaded and shared at an IP address assigned to Dever, Smith said. During a search warrant authorities seized Dever's laptop and hard drives.
"A forensic examination of the computers revealed over 200 files containing actual chat room discussions where Dever actively engaged in receiving and transferring images of child pornography," Assistant DA Crosby Parker, who prosecuted the case.
Smith said, for each count of exploitation of a child, Dever faces a minimum of five years to a maximum of forty years in prison. Given the nature of the crimes, the sentences will have to be served day for day without the eligibility of probation or parole.
Once he is released from prison Dever will then have to register as a sex offender.
