Cape Cod Man Sentenced To 15 Years For Child Sex Crime

BOSTON - A Teaticket, Mass. man was sentenced today for attempted enticement of two teenage girls.

Kevin B. Reid, 30, was sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge Sr. Mark L. Wolf to 15 years in prison and five years of supervised release. In April 2013, Reid pleaded guilty to attempted coercion and enticement of a minor.

Reid initiated contact with a 16-year-old Cape Cod girl over Facebook. The girl became bothered by the then 28-year-old defendant's contacts and told her mother. The girl's mother then initiated contact with Reid pretending to be her daughter. Eventually the mother's sister communicated with the defendant pretending to be a 14-year-old girl. When Reid’s communications became sexually explicit, the police were contacted and an undercover federal agent assumed the identity of the two "girls." Reid directed the two girls to make a pornographic video and ultimately instructed them to travel by bus to Cape Cod, where the three could have sex. In March 2012, Reid was arrested in Hyannis, as he ran to greet the bus he believed carried the two teenage girls.

United States Attorney Carmen M. Ortiz and Kevin Niland, Inspector in Charge of the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, made the announcement today. The case was prosecuted by David G. Tobin of Ortiz’s Major Crimes Unit.
