NY man gets 30 years in prison for sexual misdeeds with Shawano teen

GREEN BAY (WAOW) – A 45-year-old New York man is sentenced to 30 years in federal prison for illegal sexual activity with a child from Shawano he met on an online messaging system, U.S. Attorney Matthew Krueger said Tuesday.

James Huskisson, also known as Jason Desantes, of Ozone Park, N.Y., started the online relationship with the 15-year-old and it eventually led to him sending digital images of his genitalia to the child and demanding sexually explicit photos from the child, Krueger said in a statement.

Within two weeks, Huskisson traveled from New York to Shawano and engaged in illicit sexual activity with the child, the prosecutor said. The sex of the child was not released.

In sentencing Huskisson, a registered sex offender following rape convictions in New York in 1997 and 1999, Judge William Griesbach said 30 years in prison was needed to protect the public, given Huskisson’s "horrendous" record of sexual assaults, Krueger said.
