Man Gets 15 Years Behind Bars In Child Sex Case

ST. LOUIS (AP) — A St. Louis man has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for using texts, electronic chats and social media to convince three boys to engage in sexual activity.

Federal prosecutors say 33-year-old Noah Bledsoe was sentenced Thursday in U.S. District Court in St. Louis. Bledsoe pleaded guilty in February to sex-related charges.

Authorities say Bledsoe used Skype, Facebook, texting, email and cell phone communications to entice the boys. On one occasion he traveled to Illinois and brought a child to his St. Louis home.
