PHOENIX– An Arizona man was sentenced to 20 years in prison for class three dangerous felonies and will be registered as a sex offender following his release.
Kevin Todd St. Ledger pleaded guilty to one count of sexual exploitation of a minor and two counts of attempted sexual exploitation of a minor, according to a press release from the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office.
St. Ledger will serve 20 years in the Arizona Department of Corrections.
He was on probation for a previous felony conviction of attempted child molestation and was found to be in possession of child pornography, according to the release.
The court took St. Ledger’s previous crimes as a factor in the sentence.
“This sentence will make our community safer, especially for our children,” County Attorney Rachel Mitchell said in the release.
“The harm done to victims of sexual exploitation brings a lifetime of trauma and we must hold those responsible for that trauma accountable.”
