SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -

A Carthage, Texas, man has been sentenced to 10 years in prison and 5 years of supervised release for attempting to have sex with an underage girl in Bossier City. 

Sammy D. Mosley, 39, of Carthage, Texas, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge S. Maurice Hicks Jr. Tuesday for one count of attempting to entice a minor to engage in criminal sexual activity.

According to evidence presented at the guilty plea on March 13, 2014, Mosley responded to an online advertisement July 24, 2013 soliciting a mother and daughter for sex. Mosley began to correspond with a law enforcement officer posing as a 13-year-old girl. Mosley negotiated prices for sex and asked for nude pictures. He was arrested on August 1, 2013 at a meeting place in Bossier City, La., where he had agreed to meet the girl and her mother.

The FBI and Louisiana State Police conducted the investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Seth D. Reeg prosecuted the case. This case is part of Project Safe Childhood, a U.S. Department of Justice nationwide initiative to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse. Led by U.S. Attorneys’ Offices and the Criminal Division’s Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section, Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state and local resources to better locate, apprehend and prosecute individuals who exploit children via the internet, as well as to identify and rescue victims.
