NEW ORLEANS (AP) — A federal court has upheld a 34-year-old Sulphur man's sentence for a scheme using Facebook to get online sex chat and sexually explicit photographs or videos from teenage boys.
Jamy Linn Church contended that 24 years and five months was unreasonable. He pleaded guilty in April 2012 to four counts each of producing child pornography and of using interstate commerce to try to make a minor engage in criminal sexual acts.
The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Thursday that the sentence was within properly calculated federal guidelines and therefore was reasonable.
Prosecutors said more than 50 boys were victimized in 2009 and 2010 after answering contacts from Facebook pages that Church created using names and images of high school girls.
He was arrested in January 2011.

Title: society nowadays
This is one of the few cases where death penalty is the solution.Child abuse seems to get aggravated with the passage of time.Now,in a period where technology has reached its peak,it is the easiest thing for some people to get in touch with our children.This situation has to stop!It is imperative for the governments to take action today,as this generation is going to be virtually useless,due to psychological/physical abuse.
