Nude Pic Gets Man 10 Years in Jail

DOTHAN, Ala A judge sentenced a Dothan man to 10 years in prison for sending a nude photograph of himself to a teenage girl.
49-year-old Franklin Whaples also was accused of having photos of the girl on his phone.
Houston County prosecutor Kristen Shields says Whaples pleaded guilty to a single felony count of transmitting obscene material to a minor and three felony counts of possessing child pornography.
Sheriff's investigators arrested the man in November.
Defense lawyer Terry Bullard says Whaples is a "very nice guy" who made a mistake.
Whaples is asking for probation despite the prison sentence, and Bullard says the man is a good candidate to avoid jail time.
