For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, Western District of Pennsylvania

PITTSBURGH, Pa. - A former resident of Mt. Lebanon, Pennsylvania, pleaded guilty in federal court on May 15, 2024, to charges related to the sexual exploitation of children, United States Attorney Eric G. Olshan announced today.

Andrew Kalyl Foxx, a/k/a James Andrew Liles, a/k/a Andrew James Liles, 42, pleaded guilty to two counts before United States District Judge J. Nicholas Ranjan.

In connection with the guilty plea, the Court was advised that, on or about March 3, 2023, the defendant attempted to and did employ, use, persuade, induce, entice, and coerce a minor to engage in sexually explicit conduct for the purpose of producing a video of such conduct. On March 9, 2023, the defendant did knowingly possess this video file depicting child sexual exploitation.

Judge Ranjan scheduled sentencing for August 6, 2024. The law provides for a total sentence of up to 30 years in prison, a fine of up to $250,000.00, or both. Under the federal Sentencing Guidelines, the actual sentence imposed is based upon the seriousness of the offenses and the prior criminal history, if any, of the defendant.

Pending sentencing, the Court continued Foxx’s detention.

Assistant United States Attorney Heidi M. Grogan is prosecuting this case on behalf of the government.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation, FBI-Pittsburgh Child Exploitation and Human Trafficking Task Force, Allegheny County Police Department, and Mt. Lebanon Police Department conducted the investigation that led to the prosecution of Foxx.

This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse. Led by the United States Attorneys’ Offices and the Criminal Division’s Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section, Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state, and local resources to locate, apprehend, and prosecute individuals who sexually exploit children, and to identify and rescue victims.
