Man gets 20 years in “sextortion” case that involved Tucson girl, 13

A 39-year-old Utah man was sentenced to 20 years in prison Thursday in connection to two child pornography cases in federal court.

Donald Macarthur, of Lehi, Utah,  was sentenced in Tucson by U.S. Chief District Judge Raner C. Collins to the prison term, which will be followed by lifetime supervised release. Macarthur must register as a sex offender, according to a news release.

Macarthur had previously pleaded guilty to two counts of production of child pornography in two cases.

Authorities said Macarthur used the internet to meet young girls on modeling and pro-anorexia web sites. He communicated with the girls through email and text messages.
