A Michigan man has been sentenced to 12 years in prison for traveling to West Virginia to have sex with a 12-year-old.
U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin says Ashlee C. Liebert, 34, of Whitmore Lake, Mich., was sentenced Monday in U.S. District Court in Huntington.
Liebert pleaded guilty last October to traveling in interstate commerce with intent to engage in illicit sexual conduct with a minor.
Goodwin says during a five-month period starting in November 2011, Liebert and the child exchanged emails and phone calls. Putnam County sheriff's officers found the pair inside Liebert's vehicle parked in Buffalo in March 2012. Goodwin says a police search of Liebert's home the same day turned up more than 600 images and videos of child pornography on several computers.
