A Florida man has been sentenced to 80 years in federal prison for two counts of production of child sex abuse material and one count of receipt of sex abuse material.

A federal jury previously found 52-year-old Eddie Joe Oglesby, Jr. guilty on October 14, 2022.

He had been charged in a superseding indictment on September 13, 2022.

According to testimony and evidence presented at trial, Oglesby created an elaborate false identity that he used to impersonate a federal agent. He then used this false identity to coerce underage female victims to produce and send him child sex abuse material over the internet.

As the false agent, Oglesby threatened to have the victims arrested, imprisoned, institutionalized, or killed if they did not comply with his demands.

During a search of Oglesby’s Marion County residence by FBI agents on September 27, 2021, they found him with an underaged female runaway.

A search of Oglesby’s cellular phone showed him logged into multiple social media applications under his real and false identities.

Agents found 473 pages of electronic communications between Oglesby and one of his victims on that cellular phone.

“This case exemplifies the commitment of the FBI and our law enforcement partners to identify and locate abusers who prey on our children,” said Special Agent in Charge Sherri E. Onks for the Jacksonville Division. “The crimes committed by this predator are inexcusable and we will stop at nothing to thwart criminals like him from taking advantage of innocent youth.”
