Hot Springs, AR - Hot Springs Man Sentenced To Over 17 Years In Federal Prison For Online Enticement Of A Minor And Ammunition Possession
Todd McDonald, age 35, of Hot Springs, Arkansas, was sentenced to 210 months in federal prison followed by ten years of supervised release on one count each of Online Enticement of a Minor and Unlawful Possession of Ammunition. The Honorable Susan O. Hickey presided over the sentencing hearing in the United States District Court in Hot Springs.
According to court records, in November, 2016 agents with the Federal Bureau of Investigation were contacted by the mother of a 12 year old girl who resides in Hot Springs, Arkansas regarding sexually explicit text messages sent by an apparent 30 year old adult male. F.B.I. agents viewed messages sent by a person using the user name “Mr. Nobody”, later identified as Todd McDonald to the 12 year old girl via Instagram. The messages included statements from McDonald stating he wanted to take sexually explicit pictures and videos of the girl. Upon questioning, McDonald admitted to sending those messages. On January 4, 2017, FBI agents executed a search warrant of McDonald’s Hot Springs residence where they located, among other contraband, .38 special ammunition, which McDonald was prohibited from possessing based on his criminal history.
A federal grand jury indicted McDonald in April 2017, and he pleaded guilty in October of 2017.
This case was investigated by the FBI.
