KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A Kansas City, Kan., man who enticed a 14-year-old girl into having sex with him at least eight times will spend at least 10 years in federal prison. Nathan R. Caylor, 42, pleaded guilty on Monday to one count of enticing a minor for illegal sexual activity and one count of receiving child pornography.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office says Caylor first communicated with the victim in Blue Springs in May of 2013, using a fake name and saying that he was 17 years old. They exchanged photos and communicated via Skype. He told the victim he got cancer when he was 14, and chemotherapy and radiation treatments made him appear older. Caylor has never been diagnosed with cancer.

Their communication became sexually charged, and Caylor first traveled to the victim’s home in November of 2013. Months later in July, Blue Springs police were notified of Caylor’s contact with the teen, and used her Facebook account to continue their conversations.  One day Caylor was told the victim’s parents weren’t home, and traveled by bus from KCK to Independence, and then continued walking several miles to get to her home. He was arrested during that walk.

Investigators later found child pornography on Caylor’s computer, including images of two separate victims who were between 10-12, and 3-4 years old.

Jail records show Caylor is currently confined in the Caldwell County Jail. He’ll serve a mandatory minimum of 10 years in federal prison without parole, and he may be sentenced to life behind bars.
