From U.S. Attorney's Office
U.S. Department of Justice, Eastern District of Kentucky
LEXINGTON, KY (Wed 11 Jan 2017) - A North Carolina man, previously convicted of enticing a minor in Danville, KY, to engage in sexually explicit conduct, was sentenced on Tuesday to 262 months in federal prison.
U.S. District Judge Danny C. Reeves sentenced James Matthew Shelton, 30, and also ordered him to serve a lifetime term of supervised release following the completion of his sentence. Under federal law, Shelton must serve at least 85 percent of his prison sentence.
Shelton admitted at his guilty plea that, from July 1, 2014 to August 23, 2014, he persuaded a 13-year-old female in Danville to send sexually explicit photos of herself to his cell phone.
In April of 2015 an investigator with the Office of the Kentucky Attorney General, and other law enforcement agents, executed a search warrant at Shelton's residence in North Carolina and seized his cell phone. The phone contained images of child pornography. The investigation started in September of 2014, when the Boyle County Sheriff's Office received a complaint that Shelton had threatened one or more minors in Boyle County.
Kerry B. Harvey, United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Kentucky; Amy Hess, Special Agent in Charge, FBI; Andy Beshear, Attorney General of Kentucky; and Derek Robbins, Boyle County Sheriff, jointly made the announcement.
The investigation was conducted by the FBI, the Office of the Kentucky Attorney General, and the Boyle County Sheriff's Office.
