Syracuse Woman Sentenced On Child Exploitation Charges
A Syracuse woman been sentenced to 60 years in prison for her sexual exploitation of children.
The U.S Attorney's Office says 25-year old Emily Oberst pleaded guilty in April to one count of conspiracy to sexually exploit children and 11 counts of child exploitation.
They say Oberst admitted that she took sexually explicit images of two girls -- an infant and a four year old -- and sent them to her co-defendant Jason Kopp.
“The substantial sentence imposed today reflects the enormity of the defendant’s appalling sexual exploitation of an infant and a toddler. We will continue to use all available tools to hold child predators accountable so that all children can be safe from such abominable abuse,” said Acting U.S. Attorney Grant Jaquith.
Kopp was previously sentenced to 235 years in prison.
