Toledo man indicted for attempting to coerce minor into sex

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, Northern District of Ohio

A Toledo man was indicted for attempting to coerce what he believed to be a 17-year-old to travel interstate to engage in sex.

Douglas Wayne Kemp, 28, was charged with one count of attempted sex trafficking of a minor and one count of attempted enticement of a minor.

If convicted, the defendant’s sentence will be determined by the Court after reviewing 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 investigating agency in this case is the Federal Bureau of Investigation out of Toledo, Ohio. The case is being handled by Assistant U.S. Attorney Tracey Ballard Tangeman.

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