RICHMOND, Va. – Dane Scott Mihlon, Jr., 26, of King George, Virginia, was sentenced Tuesday to ten years in prison, followed by 15 years of supervised release for using the internet on his cellphone to entice at least eight minors to produce child pornography.

Dana J. Boente, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia and FBI Special Agent in Charge Adam S. Lee, made the announcement after sentencing by U.S. District Judge John A. Gibney.

Mihlon pled guilty on Oct. 2, 2014, to coercion and enticement of a minor. According to court documents, he admitted using a variety of applications on his cellphone to entice eight juvenile females, ranging from 12 to 16-years-old, located across the country to produce sexually explicit pictures via the internet.

On one occasion, Mihlon enticed a 15-year-old juvenile victim living in Oregon to produce at least five images of her naked, with one image depicting her engaged in a sex act.
