Former servicemember gets 10 years in jail for catfish scheme

Posted: Updated:

It appears he got his wish.


The man caught in a catfishing scheme was sentenced in federal court to 10 years in jail.

Back in September, a federal jury found Wilfredo Lopez Jr. guilty of attempted enticement of a minor and transfer of obscenity to a minor.

KUAM files show he testified he wanted out of the military and needed to stop his pay due to marital issues and not wanting to pay alimony or child support.

On the stand, he said he knowingly participated in talks with a special agent posing as a 13-year-old girl.

Lopez said he had responded to the Craigslist ad for massage services and exchanged photos with the user who went by the name "Brit."
