A 24-year-old Missoula man has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for trying to solicit nude photographs from teenage girls in 2011 and 2012 by saying he was a female wedding photographer and wanted them to model for him.

The Flathead Beacon reports Kendrick Ray Kramer was sentenced Thursday in District Court in Kalispell after earlier pleading guilty to sexual abuse of children.

Prosecutors alleged Kramer texted and emailed three girls, age 15 and 16, told them he was a wedding photographer named Karen Baker and asked them to send nude photos or videos of them in the shower or "doing things with (their) boyfriend."

One of the girls living in Flathead County reported Kramer's request to police in late 2011.
