Escambia Man Indicted On Federal Child Exploitation Charges
August 25, 2012
An Escambia County man is among three people indicted by an federal grand jury on child exploitation charges.
Federal prosecutors said Friday that between June 13 and June 15 of this year, 33-year old Brennon Kyle Holley “did knowingly attempt to persuade, induce, and entice a minor to engage in sexual activity”. If convicted of the charges, Holley faces a sentence of 10 years to life in prison and fines up to $250,000.
The federal indictment is the result of an investigation by agents of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations, the Bay County Sheriff’s Office and the North Florida Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.
A Saraland, Alabama, man, 47-year old Jeffrey Monroe Roy and 40-year old Thomas Monroe Lee of Gadsden, Alabama, were also indicted on similar charges. Roy was also accused of allegedly traveling from Alabama to Florida for the purpose of engaging in illicit sexual contact with a minor.
