PITTSBURGH, PA — In a recent federal court ruling, Frank Davis, a 31-year-old resident of Lowell, Michigan, received a 20-year prison sentence for crimes related to the sexual exploitation of a minor. Following his incarceration, Davis will undergo 15 years of supervised release, a decision handed down by United States Senior District Judge Arthur J. Schwab.

The conviction stems from Davis’s actions in August 2022, when he engaged in online conversations with a minor from the Western District of Pennsylvania. During these exchanges, Davis sent videos of himself performing sexually explicit acts and persuaded the minor to produce and share similar content.

Assistant United States Attorney Heidi M. Grogan represented the government in prosecuting this case, highlighting the gravity of exploiting minors through digital means.

United States Attorney Eric G. Olshan praised the collaborative efforts of Homeland Security Investigations-Pittsburgh, the Pennsylvania State Police, Homeland Security Investigations-Grand Rapids (Michigan), and the Lowell Police Department (Michigan) for their thorough investigation. Their work was instrumental in bringing Davis to justice.
