In determining the actual sentences, a Judge is required to consider the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines, which provide recommended sentencing ranges.
The case was investigated by the St. Charles County Sheriff’s Cyber Crime Unit and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Assistant United States Attorney Jennifer Roy is handling the case for the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
