A man convicted of attempting to send lewd photographs to a minor and attempted enticement of a minor was in District Court for sentencing this afternoon.
Ex-Navy contractor Michael Louis McCarron was convicted last October after he was caught sending lewd photographs to a 13-year-old minor which turned out to be a federal law enforcement special agent in a sting operation.
Court documents state that he sent 12 lewd images and one video to the minor. For this offense, United States Attorney Stephen Leon Guerrero requested that McCarron serve 121 months behind bars, the maximum sentence for the offense.
It was also pointed out that while on pre-trial release, McCarron violated the conditions of release when he used a computer to post an advertisement on a commercial sex website called, “Skip the Games.”
This afternoon, Chief Judge Frances Tydingco-Gatewood sentenced McCarron to 10 years for each count to run concurrently.
