National Human Trafficking Prevention Month: U.S. Attorney and HSI Announce Partnership in Tornado Alley Child Exploitation and Trafficking Task Force
U.S. District Judge Gregory K. Frizzell sentenced Jacob William Fairchild, 34, of Claremore for Coercion and Enticement of a Minor in Indian Country. Judge Frizzell ordered Fairchild to 120 months imprisonment, followed by 10 years of supervised release. Upon release, Fairchild will also be required to register as a sex offender.
According to court documents, in March 2012, Fairchild persuaded a 13-year-old minor child to engage in a sexual relationship with him. At that time, Fairchild was 23 years old. Fairchild will remain in custody pending transfer to a U.S. Bureau of Prisons facility.
The FBI and Rogers County Sherriff’s Office investigated the case. Assistant U.S. Attorney John Brasher, Stacey Todd and Gina Gilmore prosecuted the case.
This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice. Led by U.S. Attorneys' Offices and CEOS, Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state, and local resources to better locate, apprehend and prosecute individuals who exploit children via the Internet, as well as to identify and rescue victims.
