Michael Glenn Glascock of Merritt Island sexually abused a child, watched another man attack the tot and shared images of the child porn he created with other hoarders of illegal images in Central Florida and beyond
Orlando-based Senior U.S. District Judge John Antoon II sentenced Glascock on Friday to a life term in federal prison.
"This sadistic criminal has preyed on the most vulnerable members of our society, our children, and this sentencing underscores the serious consequences of those crimes," Susan L. McCormick, special agent in charge of Homeland Security Investigations in Tampa, said in a statement.
Glascock pleaded guilty in August to one count of using a minor to produce images depicting child pornography and one count of attempting to induce a minor to engage in illegal sexual activity.
The life term was for attempted enticement. Antoon sentenced Glascock to a concurrent term of 30 years for child porn.
Glascock abused a 3-year-old for a year to create "visual depictions of the child engaging in sexually explicit conduct,'' court documents allege.
In 2013, an undercover agent with the Brevard County Sheriff's Office posed as someone with a similar interest.
The agent responded to an advertisement that Glascock posted on Craigslist, the U.S. Attorney's Office said.
The agent chatted with Glascock over the Internet and by cellphone, records say.
In those conversations, Glascock detailed the sexual abuse of the child and said he wanted to meet with his new friend and that person's fictitious underage daughter.
Glascock said he wanted to have sex with the "daughter."
Agents went to Glascock's home, where they met him and rescued the abused child.
Tests found evidence of sexual abuse.
Glascock admitted to producing pornographic images of the victim, to sexually abusing the child in some of the images, and to distributing and receiving images of child pornography online.
Agents with a warrant searched Glascock's home, cellphones, SD cards and digital camera.
Twenty-four images of child sexual abuse was found on one of the SD cards.
Agents said he shared explicit images in emails with another Brevard County man, Jonathan Tyler Prive of West Melbourne.
Glascock and Prive chatted in emails about sexually abusing the child at Glascock's home as Glascock watched.
Prive was arrested and pleaded guilty in August to attempted enticement of a minor. His sentencing is set for Feb. 27.
