Former #youth mentor, #convicted #sex offender to be #sentenced

A former youth mentor charged with production of child pornography is set to be sentenced today.

Kevin Ray McMillan, 37, entered a guilty plea in October on charges of sexual exploitation of a child.

McMillan was a former teen mentor with the Boys and Girls Club of Corpus Christi and founder of Texas Youth Entrepreneurs – a nonprofit youth organization that mentors aspiring young future business owners.

In May 2017, authorities learned McMillan had been sending sexually-explicit text messages to a young girl. During the investigation, authorities learned that McMillan had had sexual contact with the girl, who was photographed on his cell phone, Abe Martinez, Acting United States Attorney said. McMillan was taken into custody as he was traveling to engage in sexual activity with a minor, authorities said.

McMillan faces a minimum of 15 and up to 30 years in federal prison and a possible $250,000 fine.

After completing his prison term, McMillan faces a lifetime of supervised release.

McMillan has been in federal custody since his arrest in May 2017.
