Ohio man sentenced to 30 years for crossing state line to engage in sex with minor

FRANKFORT, Ky. (WTVQ) —United States District judges have sentenced an Ohio man to 30 years in federal prison for crossing into Kentucky with the intent to have sex with a minor under the age of 12.

Officials say earlier this year, 60-year-old David Robert Dunn admitted that, in September of 2016, he traveled from Ohio to Scott County, Kentucky, with the intent to engage in a sexual act with a minor who was less than 12 years old. Dunn had posted an internet ad, to which an undercover investigator with the Kentucky Attorney General’s Office responded.

During the communications between the investigator and Dunn, Dunn indicated that he was intending to have sex with the investigator’s fictitious 13 and 6 year-old daughters. On September 26, 2016, Dunn was met by the investigator and other law enforcement officers, at a pre-arranged location in Scott County, where he was arrested.

Under federal law, Dunn must serve 85 percent of his prison sentence; and upon his release, he will be under the supervision of the United States Probation Office for 5 years.
