LAFAYETTE- A Louisiana man has been sentenced for enticing a juvenile into sending images of child pornography online.
The U.S. Attorney's Office said in a Thursday news release that 29-year-old Steven Anthony Lemoine was sentenced to 168 months in prison on one count of receiving child pornography.
He was also sentenced to 15 years of supervised release and must register as a sex offender.
