Sex offender accused of luring young girls online sentenced for topless photo case

BALLSTON SPA, N.Y. (NEWS10) – A Level Two sex offender from the Capital Region is being sent to prison for using a fake name while posing as a photographer to get pictures of underage topless girls.

Joseph Fowler will serve one and one-third to four years in prison after pleading guilty in Saratoga County Court to luring young girls.

In October, Fowler admitted to one charge of Disseminating Indecent Material to Minors by using a fake name to get the pictures from an underage Saratoga County girl.

Fowler had to register as a sex offender after raping a 15-year-old girl.

Investigators told NEWS10 ABC in August that they were still working to find other potential victims. No word from officials on whether or not the search has provided any more information.
