Kan. Man Appeals 27-Year Sentence Over ‘Sexting’

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A Wichita man is appealing his nearly 27-year federal prison sentence for enticing a 14-year-old girl into texting him a nude photo of herself.

Twenty-six-year-old Shane McClelland filed a notice of appeal in the sexting case Monday with the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

A federal jury convicted McClelland in May of obtaining the picture via cellphone from the girl, who lives in upstate New York. He was acquitted of a similar count involving another teen.

U.S. District Judge Monti Belot sentenced him last month under enhanced penalties as a repeat sex offender.
