Ohio Man Sentenced for Attempted Receipt of Child Pornography

United States Attorney Ron Parsons announced that a Port Clinton, Ohio, man convicted of Attempted Receipt of Child Pornography was sentenced on August 12, 2019, by Chief Judge Jeffrey L. Viken, U.S. District Court.

Adam Myosky, age 40, was sentenced to 6 years in federal prison, followed by 5 years of supervised release, and ordered to pay a $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

Myosky was one of seven men who were arrested and federally indicted as a result of an undercover sex trafficking operation conducted during the 2018 Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, targeting persons willing to pay to have sex with minors obtained through the Internet.  The conviction stemmed from Myosky communicating with someone he believed to be a 15-year-old girl, but who was in fact an undercover agent, for the purpose of arranging a meeting to engage in sexual acts with the minor.  

The undercover operation and arrests were a joint effort between the South Dakota Division of Criminal Investigation, the Department of Homeland Security, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Rapid City Police Department, and the Pennington County Sheriff’s Office.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Sarah Collins prosecuted the case.

Myosky was immediately remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
