The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania said that Sean Michael Fryer, age 37, of Factoryville, Pennsylvania was indicted Monday by a federal grand jury for multiple child exploitation crimes.

According to United States Attorney David J. Freed, the indictment alleges that Fryer used the internet and a cellular device to coerce a minor to produce child pornography and to engage in sexual conduct.  The indictment further alleges that Fryer received, distributed and possessed material in the form of visual depictions involving the use of minors engaging in sexually explicit conduct. The maximum penalty under federal law is up to life imprisonment, a term of supervised release following imprisonment, and a fine.
