LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville man who used Facebook to induce a minor female to engage in sexual activity was sentenced to 10 years in prison followed by a lifetime of supervised release.
Senior U.S. District Judge Thomas B. Russell handed down the sentence yesterday.
Michael R. Grindles, 36, pled guilty on March 19, 2012 to attempted enticement and coercion of a minor female to engage in sexual activity by means of the internet or telephone. He also pleaded guilty to possession of child pornography.
According to an Affidavit accompanying a Complaint, between July 11, 2011 and August 17, 2011 in Jefferson County, Kentucky, Grindles was alleged to have contacted a 14-year-old female on Facebook, received the girl's cell phone number then began sending the girl sexually explicit texts.
The Louisville Metro Police Department's Crimes Against Children Unit was contacted and intercepted the texts.
On August 17, 2011, Grindles arranged to meet an officer posing as the teen for sex. Grindles was arrested by Louisville Metro Police Department Officers at the arranged meeting location: 5100 Dixie Highway.
Grindles was prosecuted as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse.
