Wichita man appealing 27-year prison sentence for 'sexting' with 14-year-old girl
(CBS/ AP) WITCHITA, Kan. - Shane McClelland of Wichita is appealing his nearly 27-year federal prison sentence for luring a 14-year-old girl into 'sexting' him a nude photo of herself, CBS St. Louis reports.
The 26-year-old filed a notice of appeal in the sexting case on Monday with the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.
In May, a federal jury convicted McClelland of obtaining the picture from the 14-year-old in upstate New York via cellphone. He was acquitted of a similar count involving another teenager.
U.S. District Judge Monti Belot sentenced him last month under enhanced penalties as a repeat sex offender.
