A 22-year-old Michigan man was sentenced to almost 16 years in prison after attempting to blackmail an emotionally-disturbed 14-year-old girl to send him nude pictures.

MLive, reports that Derek C. Chapman of Harrison, was sentenced to 188 months in prison on Thursday of last week by U.S. District Judge Thomas L. Ludington.

According to the report, after Chapman is released he will face five additional years of court-ordered supervision.

Court records state that Chapman pleaded guilty in August to one count of attempted sexual exploitation of a child after admitting he used an app to communicate with someone he believed to be a 14-year-old girl living across the country in Washington state. During chats with the Chapman, the teenager shared a picture of her cutting herself due to depression.

Chapman then threatened to call Child Protective Services in her state, saying they would take her away from her parents, unless she sent him nude pictures of herself.

According to the report, this was not the first time Chapman attempted to coerce teens into providing him with nude pictures.

In exchange for his plea, the U.S. Attorney dropped charges of receipt of child pornography and possession of child pornography.

The man’s attorney said his client was remorseful for his actions and hoped to get sexual offender treatment while incarcerated, as well as obtaining his GED.

Trump clearly unhappy about the Sondland coverage, rails against the press in Austin (during photo op with Apple CEO Tim Cook)...

Allies of President Donald Trump are "freaking out" after the damning testimony from Ambassador Gordon Sondland, CNN's Jim Acosta reported Wednesday.

The administration had been caught flat-footed by Sondland's testimony.

"White House lawyers pressed in recent days to learn from Sondland’s legal team what the ambassador would tell Congress about the president and claims of a “quid pro quo” in his much-anticipated testimony today," The Washington Post reported Wednesday. "Sondland’s lawyers declined however to provide the White House with an early peek into the account that this key impeachment witness would give lawmakers about his interactions with the president."

Laura Ingraham reported the Segment during her show, 'The Ingraham Angle' along with John Yoo, who was a panelist invited by Fox News to participate in its coverage of LTC Vindman," the letter read.
