Bastrop -- A Bastrop man was sentenced last week to 65 months in prison and five years of supervised release for attempting to receive child pornography.

Christopher Wallace pleaded guilty on September 5, 2013.

According to evidence presented at the guilty plea, on January 31, 2011, Wallace began chatting online with a female he believed to be 14 years of age. He asked the girl, who was actually an undercover officer, to perform sexual acts in front of a web camera, while Wallace himself also performed sexual acts in front of the camera. Wallace was attempting to receive the sexually explicit video by using the web camera feature.

This case is part of Project Safe Childhood, a U.S. Department of Justice nationwide initiative to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse.
