Marion man charged with child exploitation after he allegedly induced a 13-year-old to engage sexual activity

A Marion man was charged in federal court for child exploitation after he induced a 13-year-old to engage sexual activity.

Tyler Foreman, 21, was charged via criminal information with one count of coercion and enticement of a minor and one count of receiving visual depictions of a minor engaged in sexually explicit conduct.

If convicted, the defendant’s sentence will be determined by the Court after review of factors unique to this case, including the defendant’s prior criminal record, if any, the defendant’s role in the offense and the characteristics of the violation.  In all cases, the sentence will not exceed the statutory maximum and, in most cases, it will be less than the maximum.

The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Danielle K. Angeli following an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

An indictment is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt.  A defendant is entitled to a fair trial in which it will be the government’s burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
