Murray Man Given Life Sentence for Recording Child Pornography

A Murray man has been sentenced to life in federal prison on child porn and sex trafficking charges. Officials say a jury found 41-year-old Jeffrey Carter guilty Wednesday on 25 counts of production of child pornography, one count of receipt of child pornography, and one count of sex trafficking children. Back in February 2015 police were notified that a 15 year-old girl had sent sexually explicit photos and videos of herself to Carter through a Facebook messenger account. Police also learned a 14-year old girl had sent nude images to Carter. Carter reportedly admitted to using the Facebook account and to contacting girls under the age of 18 and requesting nude images and videos from them. He also admitted to engaging in sexual acts with a number of underage girls, and to recording those encounters. He also told police he would pay money or provide gifts to the girls in exchange for sex or for sending nude images or videos.
