BARTLETT, Tenn. (WMC) – A Bartlett man has been sentenced to five years in federal prison for engaging in child pornography and sending explicit videos to undercover agents posing as the father of a minor girl.
Joel Evan Lattimer, 43, was convicted of solicitation of child pornography and attempted delivery of obscene material to a minor.
According to court filings, between October and November 2021, undercover FBI agents communicated with Lattimer using social media apps. During the investigation, undercover agents identified themselves as a father who repeatedly sexually abused his 12-year-old daughter.
Lattimer asked to see photos and videos of minor sexual abuse. In November, Lattimer sent the minor two videos of himself engaging in sexual behavior.
Lattimer pleaded guilty to charges in two counts.
On February 9, 2023, United States District Judge Thomas L. Parker sentenced Lattimer to 60 months in federal prison, followed by five years of supervised release.
The court also assessed a $10,000 fine under the Trafficking in Victims of Justice Act of 2015.
