United States Attorney Alison J. Ramsdell announced that a San Saba, Texas, man convicted of Attempted Enticement of a Minor Using the Internet was sentenced on July 8, 2022, by U.S. District Judge Karen E. Schreier.

Cody Allen Green, age 39, was sentenced to 10 years in federal prison, followed by five years of supervised release.  Green was ordered to pay a special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund in the amount of $100 and will be required to register as a sex offender under the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act.

Green, formerly a member of the U.S. Air Force, was arrested and federally indicted following a Cybertip from Facebook in which he was seeking and obtaining images of child pornography from an unidentified 14-year-old girl.  The Internet Crimes Against Children taskforce executed a search warrant on Green’s home and located multiple devices containing child pornography involving infants and/or toddlers. 

This case was investigated by the South Dakota Division of Criminal Investigation, Homeland Security Investigations, Department of the Air Force Office of Special Investigations, Rapid City Police Department, and the Pennington County Sheriff’s Office.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Sarah B. Collins prosecuted the case.

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