WICHITA, Kansas – A registered sex offender was sentenced to 20 years in federal prison Monday for sending obscene material to a minor while he was a patient at Larned State Hospital.

Christopher M. Case, 34, pleaded guilty to one count of transferring obscene material to a minor.

In his plea, he admitted that he resided in the Sexual Predator Treatment Program of Larned State Hospital when he committed the crime.

In mid-2011 he obtained access to a smartphone, which he shared with other residents.

In December 2011 and January 2012 he learned that another resident of the program was using the smartphone to communicate with a 13-year-old female via email and chat. The girl was in Montana.

On January 16, 2012, Case used the smartphone to send the girl video of himself masturbating.
