A Washington state man was sentenced Monday to 10 years in prison after pleading guilty to sex crimes with a local teenage girl.
Moses Lake Police originally arrested Brandon Wayne Albert Eide, 23 — also known as Brandon Bachtold — at his home in March 2016. He was soon extradited to the Clatsop County Jail. He pleaded guilty Monday to two counts of online sexual corruption, two counts of luring a minor and one count of using child in a display of sexually explicit content.
On two occasions in 2015, Eide used an online communication method to solicit sex from the girl, arouse sexual desire and arrange a physical meeting with her for sexual purposes. On one occasion, he videotaped the girl while she was participating in sexually explicit conduct.
He originally faced 50 charges that included third-degree rape, third-degree sodomy and first-degree encouraging child sex abuse. After reaching a deal with the Clatsop County District Attorney’s Office, though, he pleaded guilty to the five charges.
