Sentencing for Man Who, Online, Claimed To Be Lesbian With Cancer

A man who faked his identity online to lure young girls into relationships has been sentenced to 10 years in prison

Prosecutors say a man who posed online as a lesbian stricken with cancer to entice teenage girls into relationships has been sentenced to more than 10 years in prison.

Thirty-nine-year-old Douglas Lee Patrick of Baltimore was sentenced on Monday.

According to his plea agreement, Patrick pretended to be a cancer-stricken 18-year-old girl on social networking sites, where he solicited the girls to send him pictures of their genitalia.

A search warrant executed at his home in 2009 resulted in the seizure of videos and images depicting child sexual abuse from his computer.
