Dennis Sorto-Enamorado, age 30, an illegal alien from Honduras and most recently living in Louisiana, was sentenced today to 121 months in prison, followed by a lifetime of supervised release, after having been convicted of attempting to entice and coerce a minor to have sex with him and attempting to receive child pornography from that same minor.
According to evidence introduced at trial, Sorto-Enamorado, posted a lewd and sexually explicit classified advertisement on Craigslist.org seeking a casual sexual encounter. As part of an online undercover operation an FBI agent posing as a 15-year-old girl, responded to the advertisement.
Despite being informed on several occasions that the “girl” was only 15, Sorto-Enamorado detailed, in graphic and explicit terms, the nature of the sexual contact he wished to have with the girl. He also instructed the “girl,” on multiple occasions, to send him sexually explicit pictures of her.
During the on-line correspondence, he informed the “girl” that he wanted to meet her and have sex. He then drove from his home, to where he believed the girl was staying. Upon his arrival at the hotel room where he believed the “girl” was staying alone, he was arrested.
A subsequent search revealed that Sorto-Enamorado was in possession of two condoms.
