Kevin Moake, 50, of Flower Mound, Texas, was sentenced this morning by U.S. District Judge David C. Godbey to 10 years in federal prison, the statutory maximum, following his guilty plea in January to one count of possession of child pornography, announced James T. Jacks, acting U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Texas. Judge Godbey also ordered that Moake register as a sex offender and serve a lifetime of supervised release following his release from prison. Moake, who has been on bond, was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service at the conclusion of the sentencing hearing.
According to documents filed in court and public documents, Moake admitted that on May 30, 2007, he drove to a Burger King restaurant, on Mockingbird Lane near Love Field in Dallas, to meet an undercover officer in an attempt to buy a 9-year-old girl for sex. Public documents reveal that Moake gave the undercover officer $100 to spend the night with the nonexistent child, the cash representing a down payment in a “rent-to-own” plan. Moake was arrested on the spot and is presently facing charges in Dallas County related to this sting operation. Moake’s federal sentence will run concurrent to any state sentence he receives.
