Twenty-two-year-old David Vogelpohl of Vista, California, was sentenced Tuesday after pleading guilty to one count of sexual exploitation. Vogelpohl admits that in 2018, he persuaded, induced or enticed a female under the age of 18 to engage in sexually-explicit conduct for the purpose of producing visual depictions.
Vogelpohl had originally been charged in Cerro Gordo County District Court last October for harboring a runaway against the wishes of a parent after a 15-year-old girl ran away from home. He was arrested on November 10th in Lincoln, Nebraska. County-level charges were later dropped in favor of the federal charges.
U.S. District Judge C.J. Williams on Tuesday sentenced Vogelpohl to 360 months in prison to be followed by a five-year term of supervised release. He must also comply with all sex offender registration and public notification requirements.
