Convicted Sex Offender Sentenced to 300 Months for Child Porn Production

WICHITA, KA (STL.News) A Kansas man was sentenced 300 months in prison after pleading guilty to one count of Production of Child Pornography.

Between August 2020 and October 2020, Frederick Martin, 26, of Sedgwick used his cell phone to communicate with a minor female via Snapchat and iMessage.  He persuaded the teenage victim to record and send him sexually explicit images of herself.  Martin also sent the victim photos of himself engaged in sexual acts.  During later interrogations with law enforcement, Martin admitted he became aware of the victim’s age while they were trading nude photos.

At the time of these criminal acts, Martin was on parole for previous convictions in the state of Massachusetts on multiple counts of Rape of A Child and Possession of Child Pornography.

The Kansas Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force and Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), Kansas City investigated the case.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Jason Hart prosecuted the case.
