A New Haven man was sentenced in federal court on Tuesday for trying to coerce a minor into sex.
Jason M. Strubberg, 27, was sentenced to 10 years in federal prison without parole.
Strubberg was convicted on Sept. 21, 2016, of one count of attempting to entice or coerce a minor to engage in illicit sexual activity.
A detective with the Boone County Sheriff’s Department posted an undercover online advertisement on Jan. 6, 2016. The decoy told Strubberg she was looking for someone to help with her 14-year-old daughter’s respect issues after he responded with multiple emails the same day the ad was posted.
Strubberg described his plans for sexual conduct with the decoy’s daughter over the next two days, including making a contract for the decoy to sign. Strubberg asked the decoy and her daughter to meet in person and was arrested at the meeting place on Jan. 8, 2016.
