CA sex offender who contacted KY teen sentenced

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – A registered sex offender from California, who previously admitted to coercing a minor from eastern Kentucky to send him sexually explicit photos of herself, has been sentenced to 30 years in federal prison.

On Thursday, Chief U.S. District Judge Karen Caldwell sentenced 38 year-old Luis Antonio Caballero for urging the minor to send sexually explicit photos. At the time, Caballero was on parole for another crime related to the sexual exploitation of a minor in California.

In early 2014, Police say Caballero used threats, which included vulgar language, to get the victim to send sexually explicit photos of herself. When the victim stopped sending photos and tried to end the communications, Caballero contacted the victim’s guardian and threatened to kidnap the girl.

Caballero pleaded guilty to the charge in November 2014.
