Stafford Man Sentenced to 15 Years in Child Pornography Case

RICHMOND, VA—Justin Fox, 31, of Stafford, was sentenced today to 180 months in prison for attempted production of child pornography.

Fox pleaded guilty on May 27, 2015. According to court documents, Fox admitted he engaged in online messaging with a 13-year-old boy. During those conversations, Fox portrayed himself as a young female and asked the boy to create and send child pornography via online messenger. After the boy sent pornographic images to Fox, Fox continued to ask for more, calling the boy his slave. A search warrant executed at Fox’s residence and a forensic search of Fox’s electronic devices allowed law enforcement to identify two additional victims who Fox attempted to entice to produce child pornography.

Dana J. Boente, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia; and Adam S. Lee, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI’s Richmond Field Office, made the announcement after sentencing by U.S. District Judge John Gibney, Jr. Assistant U.S. Attorney Heather L. Hart prosecuted the case.
