A 21-year-old Muldrow man pleaded guilty Monday in U.S. District Court in Muskogee to two counts of enticement of a minor using a facility of interstate commerce.
The U.S. attorney’s office said Michael Aaron Campbell could be sentenced to up to 10 years in prison and fined up to $250,000 or both for each count.
The Indictment alleges that from June 6 until about July 26 Campbell used the Internet to entice a child, whom he believed to be under 16 years of age, to engage in sexual activity for which a person can be criminally charged for second-degree rape.
The Indictment further alleges that from June, the exact date being unknown to the Grand Jury, until July 26 Campbell used cellular communication to entice a child whom he believed to be under 14 years of age to engage in sexual activity for which a person can be criminally charged for first-degree rape, rape by instrumentation and lewd or indecent proposals or acts with a child under age 16.
The charges arose from an investigation by the Muldrow Police Department and the Department of Homeland Security.
U.S. Judge Kimberly E. West accepted the plea and ordered the completion of a presentence investigation report. Assistant U.S. Attorney John David Luton represented the United States.
