Defiance man Sentenced to 30 years for Attempted Sexual Exploitation of a Minor, Coercion and Enticement and Receipt and Distribution of Child Pornography
TOLEDO – Kyle Brackman, 29, of Delta, Ohio was sentenced to 168 months imprisonment by U.S. District Judge Jeffrey J. Helmick after earlier pleading guilty to Receipt of Child Pornography. Judge Helmick also ordered Brackman to serve a 15-year term of supervised release upon release from imprisonment.
According to court documents, the case came to the attention of law enforcement after a high school principal in Iowa contacted local police in 2017 after learning a 15-year-old student was communicating with Brackman and the messages were sexual in nature. It was later determined that Brackman had received sexually explicit material from the Iowa minor.
Brackman was arrested on July 28, 2019, after officers responded to reports of a male making sexually suggestive remarks and gestures to a 10-year-old and 13-year-old, according to court documents.
This case was investigated by the FBI and prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorneys Tracey Ballard Tangeman and Frank Spryszak.
