NORFOLK, Va. – Adam Cain, 41, of Roanoke Rapids, North Carolina, was sentenced today to 360 months in prison for coercion and enticement of a minor.  He was also sentenced to 30 years’ supervised release.

Cain pleaded guilty on Dec. 10, 2015.  According to court documents, in August 2015, a concerned relative of a 15 year old girl contacted the Windsor Police Department because she found sexually explicit conversations on a computer tablet between the girl and Cain.  Cain was a registered sex offender living in Roanoke Rapids, North Carolina, and also a relative of the 15 year old girl.   The investigation revealed that Cain and the girl had been speaking online for some months.  Then, Cain drove to Windsor, picked up the girl, and then drove back to his residence in North Carolina.  There, they engaged in sexually explicit conduct.  Cain also took sexually explicit pictures with his phone of the girl.  Later on, Cain drove the girl back to Windsor. 

Dana J. Boente, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia; and John S. Adams, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI’s Norfolk Field Office, made the announcement after sentencing by U.S. District Judge Arenda L. Wright Allen.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Elizabeth M. Yusi prosecuted the case.
