US Attorney Matthew Schneider announced a man was sentenced up to 28 years in federal prison for sexually exploiting a child.
Christopher Kilbourn, from Clio, plead guilty to sexually exploiting a child.
According to court documents, Kilbourn engaged in sexual contact with a minor victim. He later used the minor to produce child pornography.
After Kilbourn took the photos, he transferred the images over the internet to an acquaintance who lived in Ohio.
Law enforcement agents executed a search warrant in Ohio and found the child porn made by Kilbourn.
“We hope this lengthy sentence sends a strong message to anyone who seeks to abuse children,” said Attorney Schneider. “We are grateful for the dedication of agents and prosecutors who work to rescue children from these predators.”
