WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) -

A Wichita Falls man was sentenced to 13 years in federal prison for Promoting Prostitution, Cyberstalking and firearms offenses.
On Wednesday, U.S. District Judge Sam A. Lindsay handed down Joshua William Jackson's, 29, 156-month punishment.

Jackson pleaded guilty in January 2017 to one count of use of a facility of interstate commerce in aid of a racketeering enterprise, one count of illegal receipt of a firearm by a person under indictment and one count of cyberstalking.  

Jackson has been in custody since his arrest in April 2016. According to plea documents, in November 2013, Jackson began promoting an 18-year-old woman, in prostitution. 

Jackson would post commercial sex advertisements on sex-based websites such as Backpage.com. Jackson would communicate with commercial sex customers. 

Jackson benefited from this 18-year-old's sex activities. The woman continued to engage in commercial sex acts at the direction of Jackson until November of 2015 when she ended their relationship.

In January of 2016, the woman moved into her parents' home and shortly after Jackson began posting commercial sex advertisements on Backpage.com for the woman without her permission or knowledge.

These advertisements were posted between January 22, 2016 and March 27, 2016. These posts had photos of the woman, her parents' address and Jackson's cell phone number.

Jackson, posing as the woman, communicated with commercial sex customers and told them to go to her parents' house where the woman would engage in commercial sex acts with them.

Multiple men showed up to the residence with the intent to have sex with the woman. Several law enforcement agencies took part in the investigation and prosecution of this case.
