Trevor Jacob Fortner Sentenced to Four Years on Obscenity Conviction

Lubbock Active Jail Roster

A former Lubbock-area youth minister has been sentenced to four years in federal prison on an obscenity conviction.

Trevor Jacob Fortner was sentenced Friday morning by U.S. District Judge Sam R. Cummings, following his July 2013 guilty plea to one count of attempted transfer of obscene material to a minor.

According to the U.S. Attorney’s Office, the 25-year-old Fortner, a youth minister at a church in Levelland, responded to an online personal advertisement that had been posted by an undercover officer with Lubbock Police.

During ensuing emails and text conversations between Fortner and the undercover officer, Fortner repeatedly affirmed that he understood the girl’s age.

Fortner reportedly discussed meeting the minor girl and discussed sexual activities that he wished to engage in with her. He also asked her to send “kinky pics” and “dirty pics,” and on May 7th of this year, sent a sexually explicit photograph of himself.

The next day, Fortner was interviewed by Lubbock Police officers, and he admitted to sending the obscene photograph of himself.
