Sapulpa man sentenced for producing child pornography through texts
TULSA, Okla. (KTUL) —
A 32-year-old Sapulpa man has been sentenced following his conviction of one count of sexual exploitation of a child, announced U.S. Attorney Trent Shores.
Justin Lee Boyer pleaded guilty Aug. 6.
Boyer was sentenced to 25 years in prison. He will also serve 10 years on supervised release following completion of his prison term, during which time he will have to comply with numerous requirements designed to restrict his access to children and the internet.
Boyer will also be ordered to register as a sex offender.
“Boyer used technology to sexually exploit a young girl for his perverse sexual gratification. Federal agents and prosecutors are ever vigilant in their efforts to protect our children online,” said U.S. Attorney Shores. “Project Safe Childhood is a priority for this office.”
At the time of his plea, Boyer admitted he engaged in text messaging and used Skype to communicate with a 10-year-old girl who resided in another state. As a result of those conversations, the young girl produced visual depictions of sexually-explicit conduct and sent them to Boyer using her cell phone.
