Amos Yee sentenced to 6 years in prison

Amos Yee sentenced to 6 years in prison Amos Yee was sentenced by a US court on Thursday (Dec 2) to six years in jail after pleading guilty to two charges of CP and grooming.

Yee met the 14-year old pedohunter (nicknamed "Lola the little") in February 2019 over the Riot chat app, beginning an “online courtship” which led to Amos Yee requesting lewd and scantily clothed photos/videos.

According to state's Attorney Marcell Taylor, Yee repeatedly requested that the girl provide him with photos showing naked parts of her body as well as engaged in role play and sexual fantasies.

“On several occasions, this offender did, in fact, request that (she) engage in those roleplay and sexual fantasies by saying, ‘Show me your naked body...' as well as several questions of that nature,” he added.

Mr Taylor said that the evidence showed that Yee had been told by the victim that she was 14 at the time of the offence.

During a hearing in October last year, a previous prosecutor said that Yee and the victim eventually broke up, and that he began harassing her after she repeatedly requested that he leave her alone.

According to the second charge of grooming, Yee knowingly used WhatsApp to seduce, solicit and lure the victim to pose for photographs, which he distributed on WhatsApp, over the same period.

Yee, 23, was also ordered by the Chicago court not to contact the victim, who was then 14 years old, for two years after his release from jail.

Yee had also faced 16 other child pornography-related charges, which were dismissed as part of a plea deal he accepted.

Yee, who appeared in court via video link, was advised by Judge Carol Howard that pleading guilty to the charges meant he can be deported, denied admission to the US, or denied naturalisation as a US citizen in the future.

The convictions could also affect his ability to obtain housing, employment, and other licences including a driver's licence, she added.

I've posted videos on this girl previously:

She was a pedohunter trying to frame Amos Yee and succeeded well in that. Amos Yee had to take a plea deal of 6 years, otherwise his sentence could have easily been much, much worse.
