Man convicted of attempted child sex crimes
An Anchorage man could face up to life in prison for multiple attempted child sex crimes, authorities say.
On Thursday, a federal jury convicted 49-year-old Danny Ray Lowe of two counts of attempted sexual trafficking of a minor and another two counts of attempted sexual exploitation of a minor.
"According to evidence presented at trial, Lowe used text messages to negotiate the time, place, and price to have sex with two girls, aged 13 and 14," U.S. Attorney Bryan Schroder's office wrote in a release Friday morning. "On Sept. 12, 2017, Lowe arrived at Anchorage motel, ready and willing to pay $150 for two hours of illegal sex with the two minors. When Lowe knocked on the motel room door, however, local and federal law enforcement officers arrested him."
After a three-day trial, the jury found Lowe guilty on all four counts before U.S. District Judge Ralph R. Beistline. Lowe could face up to life in prison, no less than 15 years, a fine of $250,000 and a life term of supervised release.
Lowe is scheduled to be sentenced on Oct. 3, 2018.
