Sex Sting catches man trying to make child porn

If you get arrested for any child porn related computer crimes, you can expect the state of FL to punish you to the fullest extent of the law. Law enforcement officials often monitor online activity of suspected adults who try to access child pornography. Over in St. John’s, FL, a man learned this the hard way. 

The man pleaded guilty to nine counts of producing child pornography. He apparently tried to trick the young girls and then extort them. He now faces a minimum sentence of 15 years and up to 30 years in prison on each count, not too mention up to $250,000 in fines. Even when he is someday released from prison, he has a potential life term of supervision.

Do the harsh punishments match the crime he was accused of? It appears so. He would pose on social media sites as a young male looking to contact teen girls. He engaged them in sexual web chats. The girls watched images of who they thought was the young man, as he exposed himself and engaged in sexual acts. The girls had no clue that they were being filmed on their webcam and some replied by exposing themselves back. The man then extorted the girls by threatening to have their sexy chats and photos revealed to friends on social media, unless the girls provided the man with more explicit scenes.

This seems to be a new type of cyber crime craze. So much so that the FBI call such crimes as ‘sextortion’ cases. Possession and distribution of child pornography, or enticing minors are charges that can affect the rest of your life. If you find yourself in this damning legal situation, make sure your defense lawyer has the skills and experience to handle a case like this.
