Fargo man sentenced on luring, porn charges

A 28-year-old Fargo man was sentenced Thursday in Cass County District Court to two and a half years for his conviction on a number of charges, including luring a minor by computer and possessing child pornography.

Jeremy Scott Olthoff was given credit for 165 days already served.

After serving the rest of his sentence, which could be reduced for good behavior, Olthoff will be on supervised probation for five years.

He originally faced eight charges, but under a plea bargain pleaded guilty to three: luring a minor by computer, corruption of a minor and possessing child pornography.

Olthoff admitted to Fargo police that he had sex with and took videos and photographs of two minors he met online.

Prosecutor Ryan Younggren said Thursday that the cases involved three victims ranging in age from 15 to 17.
