FAIRBANKS, Alaska (KTVF) - U.S. District Judge Sharon Gleason sentenced an Anchorage man today for sex trafficking a minor and production and possession of child pornography.

39-year-old Jayshon Moore, also known as China was sentenced to 20 years in prison with 20 years of supervised release following his sentence and was ordered to pay $23,070 in restitution.

Court documents show Moore began having sexual encounters with a girl when she was 15 years old. In 2018, he created numerous sexually explicit videos of the girl and put them on social media and had 2 videos of child pornography on Snapchat. He then sex trafficked the girl when she was 16 by setting prices, arranging transactions, and taking money she earned from commercial sex acts.

Moore was previously convicted of drug trafficking and firearms offenses and was arrested in June 2019 after violating terms of his release. Law enforcement conducted a search of Moore’s home and found additional evidence of sex trafficking. Moore was convicted by a federal jury in April 2022.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Child Exploitation and Human Trafficking Task Force and the Anchorage Police Department investigated the case.
