Man used fake Facebook account to get sexual images of kids

Federal prosecutors say a New Jersey man has admitted using a fake Facebook profile to entice children to produce and send him sexually explicit images.



Michael Mostovlyan pleaded guilty Tuesday to online enticement of a minor to engage in criminal sexual conduct. The 33-year-old Deptford man faces at least 10 years in prison and could face a life term when he's sentenced June 1. He'll also have to register as a sex offender.



Prosecutors say that during a six-month period last year, Mostovlyan communicated with children online in order to obtain sexually explicit images of them.



Using a fake female persona in the name of "Amber Zee," which he created using actual images of a girl, Mostovlyan was able to persuade his victims to send him photos or videos.
