Michelle Renee McCoy, 49, of Carl Junction, was sentenced Tuesday for possession of child pornography, The Kansas City Star reported. Prosecutors say McCoy, an acquaintance of the girl, found the pictures on the girl's phone. McCoy sent them to her own phone then posted them on the girl's Facebook page. She also changed the password so the victim couldn't remove the pictures. Eventually the girl was able to shut down the Facebook account after resetting her password. McCoy admitted to police who showed up at her home that she had the phone, but refused to give it to them. They returned with a warrant and collected the phone along with the rest of McCoy's electronic devices. McCoy's attorney said his client posted the pictures to shame the victim and teach her a lesson. He asked that she receive probation because she was not a typical child pornographer. 'What Mrs. McCoy did was mean and stupid,' her attorney said in a written sentencing memorandum. 'She has been punished already in a variety of ways, including lifetime registry as a sex offender. Prison will not erase the victim's embarrassment or hurt.' Prosecutors asked for a three-year prison sentence, saying the victim was humiliated. 'The victim was subjected to the humiliation of having all of her friends and family, some of who were minors themselves, viewing the sexually explicit photographs,' federal prosecutors said in a sentencing memorandum. Back in February, McCoy pleaded guilty in a plea agreement before U.S. Magistrate Judge David P. Rush to possessing child pornography.
