McAllen Man Sentenced for Attempted Enticement of Minor
MCALLEN – A 25-year-old McAllen man was sentenced to federal prison for a decade following his conviction of attempted enticement of a minor.
Timinson Erin Jackson pleaded guilty on Sept. 30, 2016.
U.S. District Judge Randy Crane ordered Jackson to serve 10 years in prison, to be immediately followed by five years of supervised release. During that time, he will have to comply with numerous requirements designed to restrict his access to children and the internet.
He will also be ordered to register as a sex offender.
From May 25, 2016 to June 3, 2016, Jackson engaged in online communications with a person he thought was a 12-year-old minor female. The individual was actually an undercover agent with ICE’s Homeland Security Investigations.
Jackson attempted to persuade, induce and entice the “minor” into having sex with him.
He arranged to meet the person at a park in McAllen on June 3, 2016. He was arrested upon his arrival and admitted he intended to have sex with the minor.
Jackson will remain in custody pending transfer to a U.S. Bureau of Prisons facility.
