Using the name “VA Dad4Yung,” Styles lurked in several online chat rooms, where he engaged in sexually explicit conversations with users he believed to be underage. When authorities zeroed in on Styles, they found hundreds of explicit photos and images on his devices, according to WTVR. 

Despite Styles’ clean criminal record, the state attorney arguing the case feels he needs to receive maximum punishment.

“I argued to Judge Martin to look at the pics and faces of the young boys,” said Meghan Campbell said. “This is not a victimless crime, and we sent a message today that it’s not to be tolerated.”
