A 37-year-old from Eldon is sentenced to 15 years in federal prison without parole for traveling to North Carolina on five occasions to engage in illicit sexual activity with a female juvenile. James Anthony Guthrie, the third, learned his fate, on Tuesday, before U.S. District Judge Brian Wimes. Guthrie pleaded guilty in November to one count of attempted coercion and enticement of a minor for meeting with the 15-year-old for sex at various hotels. Court documents indicated that Guthrie groomed the juvenile by sending gifts, a cell phone, food delivery, a life-size teddy bear and different shopping trips. Guthrie also manipulated the victim by exploiting the fact that others had abused her. And, on one occasion according to court documents, the young child’s father even brought her to a hotel to meet up with Guthrie.
