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.

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 began in District Court today with opening statements.

US Prosecuting Attorney Stephen Leon Guerrero cut right to the chase, reading an excerpt from email correspondence between 13-year-old Brit and 32-year-old Michael McCarron. The email from McCarron reads, “I really like imagining my fingers touching your private parts rubbing and playing … I love to teach you about your body.” This email was sent by McCarron who was allegedly aware that Brit was a minor.

Andersen Air Force Base Office of Special Investigations Agent Adam Ring took on the persona of Brit and on the stand testified that the email correspondence occurred between October 31, 2017 and November 29, 2017. Leon Guerrero then provided jurors with a picture of McCarron’s genitalia which was sent to the minor along with the correspondence.

McCarron’s attorney, John Gorman, pointed out that Brit does not exist and the case is really about two “dudes” communicating with each other. Further arguing that there is no evidence that McCarron went near where Brit lived and no action was ever taken by his client.

Gorman anticipates the trial to conclude in two days.
