Man sentenced for traveling to Colorado to have sex with a child

DENVER — A Las Vegas man was sentenced Wednesday for traveling to Colorado to have sex with a child.

Brian Franklin Howard, 38, was sentenced to 10 years in prison followed by 10 years of supervised release. He was convicted in September of one count of travel with intent to engage in illicit sexual conduct with a 10-year-old child.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Denver said Howard was arrested April 2 at Denver International Airport. The office said Howard came into contact with an undercover Homeland Security Investigations agent online. The special agent was using the persona of a single mother of children ages 10 and 14. The office said at one point, Howard took photos of his penis and sent them to the agent, indicating that he would like her to show the photos to her daughters. He then arranged to meet her and her children in Denver. He flew from Las Vegas to Denver, where he was met by an undercover agent at DIA. The office said he confirmed his intent to have sex with the children and was arrested.
