LEE COUNTY, Fla. -- A Cape Coral man has been sentenced to over 11 years in prison after pleading guilty of possessing child pornography and convincing a child to send explicit images of herself to him.

According to the U.S. Attorney Office, 26-year-old Dillon Shutt pleaded guilty last year.

According to court documents, Shutt used the KIK messenger app to convince an 11-year-old girl to send him images and videos of herself masturbating. Shutt then posted those images to a website, used the victim’s name to describe the images, and advertised the link on a social media site.

In addition, Shutt possessed a total of 498 images and 36 videos on his cellphone depicting minors, as young as toddlers, being sexually abused.

Shutt is sentenced to 11 years, 3 months in federal prison.
