Geneva, Ala. teen sentenced in nude photos case

DOTHAN, Ala. (AP) -- A Geneva teenager has been sentenced to prison for sending nude pictures of himself to a 12-year-old Ashford girl.
Houston County Circuit Court Judge Brad Mendheim gave 19-year-old Branden Utley a three-year prison term on Tuesday after hearing testimony and arguments from lawyers. Utley pleaded guilty earlier this year to three felony charges, including two counts of transmitting obscene material and enticing a child for immoral purposes.
Houston County Sheriff's deputies arrested Utley in October 2010. Court records indicate Utley pleaded guilty to using a computer to send at least two nude pictures of himself to the girl. Records also indicate he was charged with enticing the same girl for the purpose of sex.
Attorney T.J. Haywood, who represented Utley, asked the court for a minimum sentence, along with probation.

    That little girl didn't want to look at a ol'ugly boy.Thanks to you she knows what to look for in a boy friend now. Someone with clothes on that has style and is decent. Not some ol' trashy vulgar boy.

    Well I guess your enticing didn't work. Seeing how you're going to jail.That little girl didn't care what you looked like.Now it will be you that will be enticed for immoral purposes. And you'll have to comply or you'll get a beat down instead of having some pictures sent to you.
