Sexual Predators Sentenced for Attempted Coercion and Enticement, Distribution of Child Pornography
PLANO, TS (STL.News) Two men have been sentenced for crimes against children, including attempted coercion and enticement of a minor and distribution of child pornography, in the Eastern District of Texas, announced Acting U.S. Attorney Nicholas J. Ganjei today.
“The Eastern District of Texas, along with its law enforcement partners, is committed to locating and stopping the most dangerous predators,” said Acting U.S. Attorney Nicholas J. Ganjei. “Many of the events of these cases occurred during the height of the pandemic; however, these agents never stopped working to ensure the safety of the children in our community.”
“Crimes against children are some of the most reprehensible acts that law enforcement is determined to prevent and punish once they occur,” said FBI Dallas Special Agent in Charge Matthew DeSarno. “We are thankful for the collaboration of our partners in the Dallas Child Exploitation and Human Trafficking Task Force. It is because of this partnership that these two individuals are now facing lengthy sentences for their crimes.”
