ORLANDO, FL - September 15, 2015 - United States District Judge Roy B. Dalton, Jr. has sentenced Jacob Isaac Bomboy (25, Lake County) to 12 years in federal prison for attempting to entice a child to engage in illicit sexual conduct. He pleaded guilty on June 1, 2015.
According to the plea agreement, from November 7, 2014, to March 11, 2015, Bomboy engaged in online communications with an undercover FBI agent posing as a 13-year-old girl, and he made arrangements to meet the “child” for sex. On March 11, 2015, Bomboy traveled to a prearranged meeting location in Seminole County and was arrested.
The plea agreement also notes that Bomboy was previously arrested by state authorities for solicitation of sex with a minor. He was ultimately convicted for attempted child abuse and was sentenced to five years of sex offender probation. Bomboy was on probation when he attempted to meet the 13-year-old girl for sex.
This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and it was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Ilianys Rivera Miranda.
This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse. Led by the United States Attorneys’ Offices and the Criminal Division’s Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section (CEOS), Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state, and local resources to locate, apprehend, and prosecute individuals who sexually exploit children, and to identify and rescue victims.
