Rolla woman sentenced to 30 years for exploitation of minorBISMARCK — A judge has sentenced a 38-year-old Rolla woman to 30 years in prison after she pleaded guilty to two charges of sexual exploitation of a minor.
U.S. Attorney Tim Purdon says Michelle Laducer produced numerous images of a minor engaging in sexually explicit conduct using a cellular smart phone with a camera in 2012. Laducer also transported a juvenile within North Dakota so that another adult could take sexually explicit pictures of the juvenile.
She pleaded guilty on June 17.
U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland sentenced Laducer to the statutory maximum sentence, to be followed by lifetime supervised release.
The case was investigated by the North Dakota Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force and was a cooperative effort of Homeland Security.
