Former Russellville Man Sentenced For Trying To Lure Child Over Internet
FRANKFORT, Ky. (April 16, 2009) – Attorney General Jack Conway and his Office of Special Prosecutions today announced the sentencing of Kevin Wayne Cain, 40, for attempting to lure a child over the Internet and for the possession of child pornography.
A Logan Circuit Court judge today sentenced Cain, who now resides in McKee in Jackson County, to a period of three years in jail. Under the terms of the agreement, Cain must serve 60 days in the Jackson County Jail and be under supervised probation for five years. He must also register as a sex offender for a period of 20 years.
On December 4, 2008, Cain pled guilty in Logan Circuit Court to use of an electronic means to induce a minor to engage in sexual activity and possession of material portraying a sexual performance by a minor, both Class D felonies.
Using a program called Spector Pro, the victim’s father was able to monitor his daughter’s activities online. He contacted Kentucky State Police after learning that Cain was having inappropriate conversations with his daughter and attempting to meet with her.
“Parents are the front line of defense in protecting children against cyberpredators,” said General Conway. “Knowing who your children are communicating with online is critical. This case could have turned out much differently for the victim had her parents not taken the appropriate steps to monitor their child’s online activities and alert law enforcement to an apparent cyberpredator.”
