United States Attorney Randolph J. Seiler announced that a Rapid City, South Dakota, man convicted of Attempted Enticement of a Minor was sentenced on June 2, 2017, by Chief Judge Jeffrey L. Viken, U.S. District Court.

Shane Davison, age 37, was sentenced to 20 years of imprisonment, followed by 15 years of supervised release, and ordered to pay a $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

Davison was charged on May 24, 2016, and pleaded guilty on February 24, 2017. The conviction stems from Davison attempting to entice multiple minor females in the Phillipines to engage in criminal sexual acts using the internet, for financial payment.

This case was investigated by the Internet Crimes Against Children Taskforce.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Sarah B. Collins prosecuted the case.

Davison was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
