Boise man sentenced for sexually abusing two children, producing child porn
Ryan Leslie Matthews, 39 of Boise, was sentenced to 210 months in prison for producing sexually explicit images of a minor. He was also sentenced to lifetime supervised release after his prison term and pay $10,700 in restitution to the victims, and will be required to forfeit several hundred photos, 138 CDs/DVDs, tape cassettes, two computers, disc and hard drives, and various catalogs.
Detectives reviewing the optical discs discovered video of Matthews sexually abusing a three-year-old female. On December 8, 2011, Matthews underwent a polygraph examination at the Boise Police Department, where he was questioned about whether he had been truthful in his denial of having sexually touched/abused a child. After completing the polygraph, he admitted to two separate incidents in which he had sexually touched minor children. Boise Police detectives were able to identify both children.
“This defendant’s nearly 18 year sentence in federal prison ensures that he is no longer a threat to innocent children,” said Olson. “His conduct causes unimaginable harm to the children he molested, and the images of that conduct repeat the victimization time and again.”
