FRANKFORT, KY (12 Oct 2017) A Frankfort man has been sentenced to 23 years in federal prison, for producing sexually explicit images of a minor and then sending them to another man.

Yesterday, United States District Judge Gregory F. Van Tatenhove formally sentenced Matthew Craig Fosson, 41, on his conviction. Under federal law, Fosson must serve 85 percent of his prison sentence. Following the completion of his prison term, he will be under the supervision of the United States Probation Office for life.

In his guilty plea earlier this year, Fosson admitted that, in August 2016, he produced sexually explicit images of a minor female, who was in his custody and care. He sent those images to a Pennsylvania man, who in turn sent sexually explicit images of another minor female to Fosson. Carlton S. Shier, IV, Acting United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Kentucky and Amy S. Hess, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI Louisville Field Division, jointly announced the sentence.
