SUMMARY:

Shane Allen Childers was arrested as part of a child prostitution undercover operation in the Kansas City area. The operation, Operation Guardian Angel, involved law enforcement agents advertising underage girls for sex acts through Craigslist. No children were actually involved. Childers, an active duty naval recruiter, responded to the advertisement by email and cell phone. Upon arriving at the designated location he paid $80 total for what he thought would be unprotected intercourse with an 11-year-old female. After paying the money the undercover agents arrested him.

He pleaded guilty to attempting to obtain a minor for a commercial sex act and was sentenced to 15 years in federal prison without parole.
