CHARLESTON, W. Va.– A Michigan man is heading to prison for having sex with a minor.

According to a release from U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin’s Office, Ashlee C. Liebert, 34, of Whitmore Lake, Mich., was sentenced Monday to 12 years in prison followed by 20 years of supervised release.

Liebert previously pleaded guilty to the charge in October 2012.

From November 2011 to March 2012, Liebert established a relationship with a 12-year-old minor living in Putnam County, stated the release. During that time, Liebert communicated with the minor through email and cell phone.

According to the release, Liebert had numerous conversations with the minor that were sexual in nature and also exchanged sexually explicit photos with the child.

On March 10, 2012, Liebert drove down from Michigan to Putnam County and engaged in illegal sexual contact with the minor, according to the release.

Deputies in Putnam County found Liebert and the minor in his parked car in Buffalo.

In addition, the release stated that upon searching Liebert’s home in Michigan, authorities found more than 600 images and videos of child pornography on several of his computers.

    I agree.. as someone that is good friends with this man, I also wonder where the parents were, how did this child have so much unsupervised computer time to let this "relationship" develop. I dont know the whole story, but I know my friend Ashlee and this isn't in his character, this girl really did play an evil trick, Ash is paying his dues, and I hope she dosn't do this to anyone else, and that she hasn't done it to others and just not got caught!

      How is it the childs fault? You can't be serious. "..this girl really did play an evil trick" Really? Really, the child is the evil one? She manipulated him? Use your head, moron.

      Maybe you didn't know Ashlee well enough? Hm.. She didn't play an evil trick, a 33/34/35 year old man should know better than to do this to a young child. You have to be joking.

    I wonder where the parents were when all of this was talking place?

      So it's the parents fault and no fault of the Perv? WTF?? How about the parents were at work; at the grocery store; at a sports event of another child; taking care of household necessities like lawn cutting, laundry, cooking, cleaning-- the list is endless ---
