A federal grand jury returned a three-count indictment today charging Eric G. Lowe, 34, of Sacramento, with attempted production of child pornography and attempted enticement of a minor, United States Attorney Benjamin B. Wagner announced. Lowe is scheduled for arraignment before U.S. Magistrate Judge Gregory G. Hollows at 2:00 p.m. today.


The indictment alleges that between April 25, 2012 and June 11, 2012, Lowe attempted to persuade a minor to engage in illegal sexual activity and attempted to produce images of child pornography.

This case is the product of an investigation by the Sacramento Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force, a federally and state-funded task force managed by the Sacramento Sheriff’s Department with agents from federal, state, and local agencies. The Sacramento ICAC investigates online child exploitation crimes, including child pornography, enticement, and sex trafficking. Assistant United States Attorney Kyle Reardon is prosecuting the case.

The statutory penalty for attempted production of child pornography is 15 years to life in prison. The statutory penalty for attempted enticement of a minor is 10 years to life in prison. Both crimes also include fines of up to $250,000 and require terms of supervised release of no less than five years and up to life.
