Madison Man Sentenced For Traveling To Canada To Engage In Sexual Conduct With Minor

MADISON, WIS. -- John W. Vaudreuil, United States Attorney for the Western District of Wisconsin, announced that Dylan Jordan, 24, Madison, Wis., was sentenced today by U.S. District Judge Barbara Crabb to 10 years in federal prison, to be followed by 10 years of supervised release, for traveling in foreign commerce to engage in illicit sexual conduct.   Jordan pleaded guilty to this charge on October 16, 2014. 

This investigation began on August 7, 2013 when the parents of a 15-year-old minor reported him missing from his home in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.  The minor victim was located on August 8, 2013, at a hotel in Vancouver, with Dylan Jordan.  The defendant was convicted of Communicating via Computer to Lure a Child Under 16, in violation of Canadian Criminal Code and was sentenced to one year incarceration in Canada, which he served before being deported from Canada to the United States.  

In December 2013, a federal grand jury in the Western District of Wisconsin returned an indictment charging Jordan with traveling in foreign commerce to engage in illicit sexual conduct.  In June 2014, at the completion of his Canadian sentence, Canadian authorities turned him over to U.S. law enforcement officials in the State of Washington, where he was taken into custody to face the federal charge for which he was sentenced today.

The conviction of Jordan is the result of an investigation by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and the Wisconsin Department of Justice, Division of Criminal Investigation.   The prosecution of the case has been handled by Assistant U.S. Attorney Julie Pfluger.
