FARGO, N.D. (AP) — A Nevada man has been sentenced to 45 years in prison for sexually abusing a toddler from the Fargo and Moorhead, Minnesota area.
Prosecutors say 43-year-old Bryan Hogle, of Las Vegas, was convicted on charges of conspiracy to transport a minor and coercion and enticement.
Investigators say a co-defendant, 36-year-old Dustin Kewley, took the 1-year-old child from Fargo to Moorhead, where he and Hogle abused the toddler at a hotel in May 2017.
Kewley and Hogle then took steps to conceal their crime, such as deleting their communications.
Federal agents, working undercover, began communicating with Kewley who said he planned to produce a video of the child being abused. Kewley electronically sent the video to an undercover agent.
Kewley was sentenced earlier to 35 years in prison.
