WEST VALLEY, N.Y. (WIVB) - A West Valley man will spend the next 10 years in prison for attempting to get a minor to send him explicit photos.
Michael Lee Reed, Jr. was arrested after the victim's mother contacted law enforcement. She had looked through her daughter's cellphone and found the 22-year-old was trying to convince the girl to send him explicit photos.
Authorities say because the victim's mother took action, no photos were ever sent. Reed was arrested and convicted of attempted enticement of a minor to engage in sexual activity.
When Reed is released, he will have five years of supervised release.
