From the U.S. Department of Justice, Northern District of Texas:

Njeazeh Roderigue Ambeabet, 24, of Lubbock, Texas, was sentenced today by U.S. District Judge Sam R. Cummings to 210 months in federal prison, to be followed by 20 years of supervised release, following his guilty plea in April 2013 to one count of production of child pornography.

Ambeabet has been in custody since his arrest in February 2013. Today's announcement was made by U.S. Attorney Sarah R. Saldaña of the Northern District of Texas.

According to documents filed in the case, last year, Ambeabet met an 11-year-old girl online and engaged in a texting relationship with her, frequently asking her to engage in sexual relations with him. He admitted that he was well aware of her age, and that he received sexually explicit images of her that were taken with her cell phone at his request.

The case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative, which was launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice, to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse.

Led by U.S. Attorney's Offices and the Criminal Division's Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section, Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state and local resources to better locate, apprehend and prosecute individuals, who sexually exploit children, and identify and rescue victims.  For more information about Project Safe Childhood, please visit http://www.justice.gov/psc/.  For more information about Internet safety education, please visit http://www.justice.gov/psc/ and click on the tab "resources."      

The investigation was conducted by the FBI and the Lubbock Police Department.
