Escambia Man Convicted On Federal Child Exploitation Charge

October 5, 2019

An Escambia County man has been convicted on federal child exploitation charges.

After a two-day trial, a federal jury convicted Brennon Kyle Holley, 41, of attempted enticement of a minor. Holley came to the attention of law enforcement after he placed a Craigslistadvertisement seeking sex that said “age, relationship doesn’t matter.”

A law enforcement officer posing as a 13-year-old Panama City girl named “Rhea” responded to the ad, and Holley then engaged in sexually explicit phone and text conversations with Rhea. He also sent sexually explicit photographs in an attempt to entice and persuade her to engage in sexual activity with him.

After four days of communication, and believing Rhea’s parents were out of town, Holley “convinced” the girl to let him come to her house when he got off work in Pensacola in order to engage in sexual activity. Holley began the trip, but never arrived because his car broke down near Fort Walton Beach.

Holley faces a mandatory minimum 10 years and up to life imprisonment. The sentencing hearing is scheduled for December 13.
