Kansas man sentenced for child porn crimes in Philippines
WASHINGTON (AP) — A Kansas man who traveled to the Philippines to have sex with minor females has been sentenced to 84 years in prison.
Federal prosecutors announced Thursday that Anthony Shultz, a helicopter pilot from Lindsborg, videotaped his sexual encounters with 12- and 15-year-old girls and brought the videos back to Kansas. He also sold the videos online. In one of the videos, Shultz is seen giving the 15-year-old money after having sex with her.
He also produced child pornography with an 8-year-old girl in the Philippines with the cooperation of the girl’s mother.
Schultz pleaded guilty in July 2018 to three counts of producing child pornography.
This case was part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide federal initiative to combat child sexual exploitation and abuse.
