Dale Wray Fulford, 77, of Slaton, Texas, was sentenced today by U.S District Judge Sam R. Cummings to 15 years in federal prison, following his guilty plea in March 2014 to one count of production of child pornography. The announcement was made today by U.S. Attorney Sarah R. Saldaña.

Fulford admitted that between February 2013 and early February 2014, he used, persuaded, induced and enticed a female minor, under age 18, to engage in sexually explicit conduct that he recorded on a digital camera.

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.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) and the Lubbock County Sheriff’s Office investigated. Assistant U.S. Attorney Steven M. Sucsy prosecuted.
