Attorney General Conway Announces Guilty Plea for Man Who Tried to Lure Child Over Internet
Attorney General Jack Conway and his Office of Special Prosecutions today announced the conviction of a former Russellville, Ky., man for using the Internet to attempt to induce a minor to sexual activity and for the possession of child pornography.
“The prosecution of crimes involving children is a top priority for my office. I am pleased that there are parents who follow our office’s regular advice - to keep their children safe by taking measures to know who they are communicating with online. Also, we are pleased that our Office of Special Prosecutions was able to offer assistance to local law enforcement in this serious case,” General Conway said.
Kevin Wayne Cain, 40, entered a plea of guilty today in Logan County Circuit Court to use of electronic means to induce a minor to engage in sexual activity and possession of material portraying a sexual performance by a minor. The charges are Class D felonies and a sex offense, carrying up to five years in prison, a minimum $1000 fine, and registry as a sex offender.
The victim's father used a program called Spector Pro to monitor his daughter's activities online. When he learned that Cain was having inappropriate conversations with his daughter and attempting to meet with her, he notified the Kentucky State Police (KSP.) KSP, in conjunction with the Bowling Green Police Department, acted quickly to obtain a warrant and search Cain's residence and computers. The findings of the search resulted in Cain's prosecution.
Cain will be formally sentenced on February 12, 2009 at 8:30 a.m.
