Minot Woman Sentenced to 25 years for Sexual Exploitation of a Child
BISMARCK – United States Attorney Christopher C. Myers announced that on March 12, 2018, Chief United States District Judge Daniel L. Hovland sentenced Ashley Marie Moore, 29, Minot, ND, on charges of Sexual Exploitation of a Child; and Distribution of Images Depicting the Sexual Exploitation of Children. Judge Hovland sentenced Moore to serve 25 years in prison for count one and 20 years in prison for count two, both sentences to run concurrently. Moore was also sentenced to 10 years of supervised release.
Between July 2015 and October 2015, on three separate occasions, Moore videotaped herself sexually exploiting her 7 month old daughter while at her residence on the Minot Air Force Base, ND. Moore sold the cellphone videos to a male she knew in Alabama, Leo Greene, for $50.00 each. The videos were later discovered on Mr. Greene’s cell phone by family members after his death from cancer. The family members immediately reported the videos to law enforcement in Alabama.
This case was investigated the Alabama State Bureau of Investigation; Air Force Office of Special Investigations, Minot, ND; and Ward County Sheriff’s Department, Minot, ND.
Assistant United States Attorney Gary L. Delorme prosecuted the case.
