Indiana Man Sentenced For Child Exploitation After Arrest in Garfield County
DENVER - The Indiana man who admitted to child exploitation is sentenced to over three decades behind bars. According to a spokesman from the U.S. Department of Justice, 35-year-old Steven Raines has been sentenced to more that 34 years behind bars. Raines pleaded guilty to a list of charges including attempted coercion, enticement to engage in unlawful sexual activity with a minor and distribution of child pornography. These charges stem from his arrest in April of 2012, when Raines was caught traveling to Garfield County to meet a woman with intention to have sex with her two underage daughters. That woman turned out be an undercover agent. The judge has ordered that after serving his 412 months behind bars, Raines will spend the rest of his life on Supervised Release.
