Former YouTuber and musician Austin Jones has been sentenced to 10 years in prison “for enticing several underage girls, some as young as 14 years old, to produce sexually explicit videos of themselves,” the Justice Department said.

The pornographic videos requested by Jones were asked to girls aged as young as fourteen years old. The crooner was arrested in 2017 with regards to a production of child pornography. Assistant U.S. Attorney Katherine Neff Welsh adds in consideration of the case: “Jones’ actions took something from his victims and their families that they will never be able to get back.” Accordingly, a total of six victims were counted as victims in the ordeal, however, Jones admitted to having asked several minor girls thirty other times.

Jones also admitted to using Facebook around 30 other times to try to persuade minors to send him “sexually explicit” videos and photos, according to prosecutors.

“Today’s sentencing of Austin Jones represents a major step towards justice for the young victims whom he manipulated and exploited,” Homeland Security Investigations Special Agent-in-Charge James Gibbons said in a statement.

Jones gained popularity on YouTube covering popular songs, leading to hundreds of thousands of subscribers and concerts all over the country. He was arrested on child porn charges in 2017 and had previously admitted to asking fans to make twerking videos. “Nothing ever went further than twerking videos,” he said in an apology video at the time. “There were never any nudes, never any physical contact.”
