M.L. man sentenced to 50 years in connection to child pornography
- Moses Lake, WA
A Moses Lake man has been sentenced to 50 years in federal prison for conspiracy to produce, production and possession of child pornography.
Ukrainian citizen and Moses Lake resident Mikhail Yuriy Ageyev was found guilty to his charges that were filed in October. Senior United States District Judge Wm. Fremming Nielsen sentenced Ageyev to 50 years in prison and a lifetime of court supervision after his release.
Local law enforcement reportedly received CyberTips from Twitter and Microsoft about Ageyev’s internet activity.
MLPD received CyberTips regarding Ageyev beginning on October 30, 2017, they quickly followed up with search warrants on his online accounts. MLPD executed search warrants that same year on November 18th at Ageyev’s home. He then admitted to having child pornography on his phone, exchanged links, images, and other videos with others online, and he himself had taken the explicit photos of a child.
Adams pleaded guilty to conspiracy to produce and distribution of child pornography in January 2019, and agreed to testify against Ageyev at his trial. She will be sentenced in February.
