A federal judge on Wednesday sentenced a New Iberia man to 30 years in prison and a lifetime of supervision after his release for posing as a girl over an online video-streaming service in order to encourage young boys to engage in sex acts.
U.S. District Judge Richard Haik also ordered Raymond F. Doyle III, 41, to pay $735.95 in restitution, according to a news release from U.S. Attorney Stephanie Finley.
Doyle pleaded guilty on April 16 to one count of producing child pornography. Evidence from his home computer showed Doyle began using Skype to communicate with more than 60 boys during the summer of 2011, most often posing as a girl and encouraging one of the boys to engage in sex acts over the online video service, the news release states.
U.S. Postal Service agents led authorities to Doyle’s home after he shipped a sex toy to a 14-year-old Oklahoma boy for use on Skype, Finley said.
