Yesterday, (sep 18th) a Ste. Genevieve, man was sentenced to 30 years, in federal prison for production of child pornography. The United States Attorney’s Office said that 47 year old Randle Hughley, was given the statutory maximum sentence. At a plea hearing on June 19 Hughley admitted that he used a rented phone to create a video of himself engaging in sexual activity with a 10-year old child. Court documents revealed the child victim had been diagnosed with autism. After the phone was repossessed for failure to make scheduled rental payments, the video recording was discovered. Following his sentence, he was ordered to be placed on lifetime supervised release. He will also be required to register as a sex offender.
