McCarron found guilty in sexting sting trial

175
The trial for the sex sting operation case which landed former Navy contractor Michael McCarron behind bars for allegedly attempting to entice a minor and send lewd photographs has ended with a guilty verdict.

In District Court Thursday, former Navy contractor Michael McCarron was found guilty on all counts in his internet sexting trial.

He was found guilty of attempting to entice a minor and attempting to send obscene photographs to a minor.

McCarron was arrested after he sent lewd emails and naked photos of himself to someone he thought was a 13-year-old girl named Brit.

However, at the other end of the internet line was an undercover agent with Andersen Air Force Base’s Office of Special Investigations, Adam Ring.

Ring testified that the email correspondence occurred between October 31, 2017, and November 29, 2017.  The emails were introduced during the trial.

McCarron’s defense counsel, John Gorman, told jurors that Brit was a fictional person and no harm was done to any minor. He said the case was really about two “dudes” communicating with each other.
