Washington D.C. Man Sentenced for Transporting Teenage Boy to Engage in Sexual Activity

BOSTON – A Washington D.C. man was sentenced today in U.S. District Court in Boston in connection with transporting a teenage boy from Maryland to Boston and other states to engage in sexual activity.

Jason Michael Wolf, 31, was sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge Allison D. Burroughs to 10 years in prison and 10 years of supervised release. Additionally, upon release from prison, Wolf will be required to register for life as a sex offender in any state in which he resides.  In September 2016, he pleaded guilty to one count of transportation of a minor in interstate commerce to engage in illegal sexual activity. 

On Aug. 17, 2015, the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) Police received information that an adult man and a minor were acting inappropriately at the South Station Bus Terminal.  Law enforcement arrived on scene and interviewed the two individuals who were identified as Wolf and a 14-year-old boy from Maryland who was determined to be the subject of a missing persons report.  The two admitted that they had met on a mobile dating app in July, traveled to Boston from Maryland, and engaged in sexual activity in Maryland, Washington D.C., New York and Boston. 

In August 2015, Wolf was arrested by the Boston Police and charged with aggravated statutory rape of a child under state law.  On Nov. 2, 2016, Wolf was convicted of statutory rape of a child and is set to be sentenced in state court on Jan. 6, 2017.

United States Attorney Carmen M. Ortiz; Harold H. Shaw, Special Agent in Charge of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Boston Field Division; Shelly Binkowski, Inspector in Charge of the U.S. Postal Inspection Service; Boston Police Commissioner William Evans; and Chief Kenneth Green of the MBTA Transit Police Department, made the announcement today.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Kenneth G. Shine of Ortiz’s Major Crimes Unit prosecuted the case.
