Springfield Man Sentenced To 235 Months in Prison

A Springfield man will spend time in federal prison in a child exploitation case.

A judge sentenced Kody Ray Kelso to 235 months in prison.

Investigators say Kelso used a teen dating site to contact a person that he believed was a 13 year-old girl and asked for them to send him nude photos.

Instead it was law enforcement in the U-K.

He has been in jail since he was arrested in June of 2021 after law enforcement search his apartment.

  1. That’s a short sentence…TOO short. Will he be on a sexual offender registry somewhere? Perhaps also internationally?
