A Missouri Southern State University student will spend 15 years in prison without parole.
Federal prosecutors say 20-year-old Harry Sneed of Saint Louis pleaded guilty to sexually exploiting three minors in an attempt to produce child pornography. Prosecutors say Sneed admitted he sent e-mails to the 11-year-olds asking for sexually explicit photos of themselves.
They say none of the minors complied with the request. They also say Sneed admitted sending child porn images to the victims.
