An Arkansas man learns how much time he will spend behind bars for exchanging nude photos with minors and engaging in sexual intercourse with a 12-year-old.

Aaron Greene, 27, of Fort Smith, was sentenced Tuesday to 280 months in prison without the possibility of parole followed by 10 years of supervised release.

According to court records, in May 2018 officers with the Barling Police Department received information from law enforcement in Georgia that an individual had been soliciting images of a 12-year-old female.

During the ensuing investigation, Greene was located and, after being advised of his rights, admitted to engaging in online relationships with a number of underage females.

Greene also admitted to possessing on his cellular phone nude images of several of the minors. Based on his statement, a search warrant was obtained the following day for his cellular phone.

A subsequent forensic review of the phone revealed numerous sexually explicit images of multiple minors, ranging in age from 12 to 15 years old. The images of the minors were saved to Greene’s cellular phone under specific folders referencing the nickname he assigned to each minor.

One particular 12-year-old minor from Oklahoma later disclosed to law enforcement that in addition to exchanging sexually explicit images online, Greene had engaged in sexual intercourse with her on two occasions.

Greene was indicted in July 2018 on federal charges and pleaded guilty to enticing three separate minors online in Oct. 2018.
