Fort Wayne, Ind. (WFFT) - A Fort Wayne man who pled guilty to traveling to Colorado to have sex with minors has been ordered to serve over 34 years in federal prison, followed by a lifetime of supervised release.
35 year-old Steven Raines was sentenced on Tuesday in Denver, Colorado. He pleaded guilty in October to attempted coercion and enticement and distribution of child pornography.
WFFT spoke with neighbors who lived near Raines. Many of them regularly had him over for dinner and even left him alone with their kids.
Raines was arrested after speaking with a woman online who claimed to be a single mother of two young girls under the age of 16. The woman was actually a special agent with the Department of Homeland Security.
