Cheraw Man Sentenced to Nearly Seven Years for Transferring Obscene Material to Minor After Multi-State Operation

Acting United States Attorney M. Rhett DeHart announced today that Nathan Branham, 40, of Cheraw, was sentenced to nearly seven years in federal prison after pleading guilty to transferring obscene material to a minor and having his federal supervised release revoked.

Evidence presented to the Court showed that Branham, who was on supervised release for a previous federal conviction for being a felon in possession of a firearm, coerced a 13-year-old minor in Kentucky to speak with him via video chat and threatened to come to her home if she did not expose herself to him. After she complied, Branham exposed himself to the minor.
