Child porn case yields 25-year prison term

A 68-year-old Youngstown man received a 25-year federal prison sentence after he pleaded guilty to two counts of coercing a minor to engage in sexually explicit conduct.

Leslie James Coe also had pleaded guilty to knowingly receiving and distributing in interstate and foreign commerce numerous computer files containing visual depictions of real minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct.

The coercion-of-a-minor counts date back to 1998 and 2001, and the picture-distribution count refers to activities between March and August 2013.

Coe, a Navy veteran with no prior criminal record, drew the sentence Monday from U.S. District Court Judge Sara Lioi in Akron. The judge ordered that Coe be placed on supervised release for the rest of his life if he outlives his prison term.

The FBI began investigating this case in March 2013. FBI agents and Mahoning County sheriff’s deputies arrested Coe after executing a search warrant at his residence Aug. 23, 2013.

The investigation began when an undercover FBI agent in Philadelphia downloaded child pornography, which was traced to Coe’s residence.
