A sex offender will spend many years behind bars after conning children into sending him nude photos of themselves.

The registered sex offender from Texas was sentenced to 45 years in federal prison following his guilty plea to producing child pornography and other related offenses.

33-year-old Jason Lee Randall of Mesquite pleaded guilty to producing, transporting, and possessing prepubescent child pornography.

According to court records, Randall, who was a registered sex offender and was previously convicted of possessing child pornography, used the online alias “Emily Randall” to communicate with other children via the Internet.

Randall, using various online accounts, pretended to be a 12-year-old girl and convinced other girls he met online to engage in sexually explicit conduct and create child pornography of themselves.

Randall then sent this child pornography to other children to convince them to engage in sexually explicit conduct and create more child pornography.

On at least one occasion, Randall video-chatted with a child and engaged in a sex act visible to the child.

Randall victimized at least 20 girls around the world the majority of whom were between the ages of 9 and 13.

He also possessed thousands of images and videos of prepubescent child pornography, including videos involving infants being sexually abused.

In his Twitter bio, Randall refers to himself as an “Asian (Japanese/Filipino), Bodybuilder, Personal Trainer, and Online Coach.”
