A fired Jacksonville Jaguars Jumbotron operator has been sentenced to 220 years in federal prison for multiple offenses involving sexual abuse of children, sex offender violations and causing malfunctions of the EverBank Stadium video boards, the U.S. Attorney’s Office announced.

Samuel Arthur Thompson, 53, of St. Augustine was found guilty in November of producing, receiving and possessing child sex abuse material, producing it while required to register as a sex offender, violating the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act, sending unauthorized damaging commands to a protected computer and possessing a firearm as a felon.

Thompson was convicted of sodomizing a 14-year-old boy in Alabama in 1998. He was hired as a contractor by the Jaguars in about 2013 to consult on the design and installation of the Jaguars’ new video board network and later operate it on gamedays. His contract required him to report his conviction, but he did not, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office. The Jaguars did not renew Thompson’s contract in January 2018 after learning of his conviction and status as a registered sex offender.
