YouTube Star Hit With 10 Year Jail Sentence For Child Pornography

According to a criminal complaint submitted by Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) Special Agent Michael Ploessl, Jones, who was 24 at the time of his arrest, exchanged sexually explicit messages with underage girls online.

He told them that he had potential "modelling opportunities" for them and encouraged them to perform sex acts in order to prove that they were his "biggest fan". The latter was to prove their loyalty as fans to him.

As part of his plea, Jones admitted to a total of six identified victims and approximately 30 attempts to persuade other girls to send him child pornography, according to prosecutors.

The former YouTube singer from Bloomington, Illinois, had amassed a huge teenage following and his music videos racked-up millions of views on YouTube which he parlayed into tours.

Almost two years after his arrest on child pornography charges, the YouTube star was sentenced to 10 years in prison on Friday.

A YouTube musical celebrity was sentenced on Friday in a Chicago courtroom to 10 years in prison for enticing girls as young as 14 to produce sexually explicit videos of themselves.

Raptors list Pascal Siakam as 'doubtful' for Game 4 with calf injury
With Siakam's status in doubt for Sunday's game, Kyle Lowry told reporters he'd be more aggressive with his shot selection. It's an immeasurable loss for the Raptors, who are trailing the Sixers 2-1 entering Sunday's contest.

Prosecutors said Facebook tipped off the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children about Jones's conversations with 14- and 15-year-old girls using the social media service's private messaging feature.

According to the complaint, Jones instructed the girls on how to shake or "clap" their buttocks and expose themselves in videos for him.

In a Facebook post at the time, which has since been deleted, he wrote: "I'm embarrassed".

"Nothing ever went further than twerking videos", he said. Sometimes I'd make videos of myself doing some twerk moves in return.

Shortly after, he made a video explaining how he used to ask viewers for twerking videos.

"Production and receipt of child pornography are extraordinarily serious offenses that threaten the safety of our children and communities", Assistant U.S. Attorney Katherine Neff Welsh said in the government's sentencing memorandum.
