Lafayette Man Sentenced To 14 Years In Prison For Receiving Child Pornography Through Facebook

A Lafayette man was sentenced last week to 168 months in prison for enticing a minor into sending images of child pornography online.

Steven Anthony Lemoine, 29, of Lafayette, was sentenced January 18 on one count of receiving child pornography. He was also sentenced to 15 years of supervised release and must register as a sex offender. According to the October 19, 2018 guilty plea, Lemoine posed as a female on Facebook and enticed a 12-year-old minor to send him images of child pornography on December 26, 2016 and January 5, 2017. His home was later searched, and he admitted to using the online persona to obtain the images.
