A Texas man was sentenced to 34 years in prison Tuesday two years after sending child pornography he created to undercover investigators, according to a press release from the United States Attorney's Office Southern District of Texas.

Joshua James Holmstedt, 41, pleaded guilty in April to sexual exploitation of a girl under five years old and possession of child porn, the U.S. Attorney's Office wrote in the release.

Holmstedt replied to an online post left by undercover investigators in 2017, indicating he had access to two minor children, “which he proved by sending a picture of himself holding up a specific number of fingers in front of the minor female victim’s face,” the release said.

He sent an undercover officer several explicit pictures and videos he had made of a three-year-old girl. "One of the worst videos Holmstedt provided showed him digitally penetrating the minor female," the press release said.

Damn, it almost sounds like LE encouraged him to harm the girl. Locking his ass up is definitely in order but when it was determined these videos were being custom made as opposed to just passed along, couldn't a search warrant be issued then and there?

They had to tell him how many fingers? Don't encourage the perv to get his fingers anywhere near the kiddies, ffs.
