A federal prosecutor in central Louisiana says a Eunice man has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for persuading a 12-year-old girl to send him sexually explicit photos.
The sentence was handed down Friday for 36-year-old Adam Shilow. A news release from acting U.S. Attorney Alexander Van Hook in Alexandria says Shilow pleaded guilty last July.
Prosecutors said that Shilow contacted a 12-year-old girl via the internet and pretended to be a juvenile himself.
They exchanged sexually explicit photos of each other in November 2013.
