Man Who Asked for Sext Messages Sentenced

A Cattaraugus County man has been sentenced in federal court for trying to get a child to engage in sexual activity with him.

Prosecutors say 22-year-old Michael Reed of West Valley attempted to get a minor to send provocative pictures through text messages. The victim’s mother contacted police after looking through child’s cell phone, so no pictures were ever sent.

Reed has been sentenced to 10 years in prison, and five years of parole after he’s released.
