A Jonesborough man was sentenced on Thursday in US District Court after pleading guilty to enticement of a minor to engage in sexual activity.

51-year-old William Charles Ellis was sentenced to 10 years in prison, followed by 15 years of supervised released.

In August 2019, Ellis reportedly used an online dating app to communicate with a person that he believed to be a 15-year-old minor female. The "minor female" was an FBI agent working an online covert investigation. Ellis sent sexually explicit photos and requested sexually explicit photos and videos.
