Even with time off for good behavior, a Bronx man will have to wait more than a century before he can hurt another kid.
David Keith, 39, was sentenced Tuesday to 168 years in federal prison for sexually exploiting minors — and recording his sick acts on video, officials said.
Keith pleaded guilty in November to five counts related to the child exploitation and related child pornography crimes, as well as lying to the feds about abusing kids, according to the Manhattan U.S. Attorney’s Office.
Prosecutors said Keith lured a 12-year-old girl into his car on Oct. 13, 2013, and taped “himself engaging in coercive sexual conduct with her.” Keith told the girl he would hurt her if she told anyone what had happened and threatened that he was watching her, prosecutors said.
The day before, Keith lured a girl between ages 8 and 9 into his car and “caused her to remove some of her clothing so that he could record her exposed genitals,” according to the feds.
Keith, who was arrested on Nov. 17, 2015, also downloaded child pornography and admitted he lied about having an alibi during the depraved attacks, officials said.
“For his predatory crimes that included luring a girl as young as 9 years old into his van to make sexually explicit videos and even threatening to harm another if she reported his sexual assault, David Keith has received a lengthy prison sentence,” said Acting Manhattan U.S. Attorney Joon Kim. “Protecting children from sexual exploitation is, and will remain, one of the most important missions of this office.”
