WHITE PLAINS – A physician’s assistant from Middletown was sentenced to 25 years in federal prison for his enticement of seven minors to engage in sexual activity.

According to court documents and statements, Jonathan Weiss, also known as Ian_Jameson, 32, communicated online via Snapchat with a 13-year-old and directed the girl to send him sexually explicit photos. He used the Snapchat screen name of “Ian-Jameson” and posed as a minor.

He told her that if she did not send more nude photos, he would send those she had already sent to others. She blocked him on snapchat and shortly thereafter, people began telling her they had received her nude images.

Weiss engaged in the same type of activity with six other minors – a 13-year-old in August 2019, a 13-year-old in May 2020, a 14-year-old in June 2018, a 16-year-old in February 2020, a 13-year-old in February 2019, and a 14-year-old in June 2019.

At Weiss’ sentencing on Tuesday, Judge Philip Halpern said there was “no excuse” for his “despicable conduct.”
