A Mooresville man who was arrested following a joint investigation with Moore County Sheriff’s Office and the Federal Bureau of Investigation in April for driving to Aberdeen with the intent of meeting an underage girl for sex was sentenced to 10 years in prison, announced Moore County Sheriff Ronnie Fields in a news release.
“Brett Frazier drove to the Aberdeen area of Moore County with the intent of meeting a 13-year-old female he met online for the purpose of engaging in an unlawful sexual act,” said Fields.
Frazier, 30, was sentenced on Oct. 21 to 10 years in federal prison followed by 10 years of supervised probation after he pled guilty in court to one count of attempted enticement of a minor.
“The Moore County Sheriff’s Office, as well as the FBI, are both active agencies within the North Carolina Internet Crimes Against Children (NCICAC) Taskforce,” said Fields. “Within this group, the focus is on protecting our youth from online predators, educating them and their parents about the dangers of the internet, and prosecuting those who violate the rights and freedoms of our children.”
