Man sentenced for traveling to have sex with minor
A man was sentenced to seven years in prison for traveling from Maryland to the District to have sex with a 14-year-old girl, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office. Kenneth Michael Drew, 42, pleaded guilty in federal court in D.C. to traveling in interstate commerce for the purpose of engaging in sexual conduct with a minor in February, according to a court document. In November, Drew met the teenager on Facebook while he represented himself as a 19-year-old. They chatted for a month on the social networking website, officials said, and the girl gave Drew her name, address, school name and other identifying information. When Drew went to the girl's house, she refused to have sex with him. Drew threatened to distribute nude photos of the victim to her school and family unless she let him have sex with her.
