Child Porn Puts Virginia Man Away for 25

     (CN) – A man who served as a volunteer at a Virginia middle school was sentenced to 25 years in prison on Friday for producing child pornography.
     A federal jury convicted David Alexander Battle II on March 10, 2016, on charges of producing child pornography, attempting to coerce and entice a minor, and the distribution and receipt of child pornography.
     According to prosecutors, the 24 year old used his position as a volunteer with the music program at the Grace E. Metz Middle School in Manassas to prey on its young students.
     According to evidence presented at trial, Battle used his home computer to share images of child sexual exploitation via webcam on a chat website in April 2015.
     Battle also posed as a minor girl on another chat platform and chatted with minor boys, including two boys he personally knew, coercing and enticing them to send him sexually explicit images of themselves.
     The trial evidence also showed Battle’s laptop contained gigabytes of child sexual exploitation files.
     In addition to the jail time, U.S. District Judge Claude Hilton also ordered Battle to serve 15 years of supervised release.
