Crimes of Possessing Child Pornography

In January of 2014, Chad Alan Cole, a former 911 dispatcher for the city of Auburn Hills, Michigan and firefighter for the Village of Holly, Michigan, was sentenced to 24 years in prison for possessing child pornography and luring minors over the Internet.

Cole, 45 years of age, convinced a 12 year-old-girl from Idaho to provide him with sexually explicit pictures and videos of her. He also sent the young female explicit photos and videos of himself masturbating. Cole also persuaded the young female to engage in sexually explicit conversations and acts through Skype. Upon his arrest, Cole also admitted to persuading 10-20 other minors to partake in the same behavior.
