SPRINGFIELD, MO (STL.News) – A Springfield, Missouri man was sentenced in federal court today for enticing a person whom he believed to be a minor (but who was actually an undercover law enforcement officer) to engage in illicit sex.
Daniel Rowland, 55, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Brian C. Wimes to 10 years in federal prison without parole. The court also sentenced Rowland to 15 years of supervised release following incarceration.
