Musgrove pleaded guilty in September in U.S. District Court in Augusta to the production of child pornography, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Georgia said in a news release.
The Augusta Chronicle reported Musgrove was an integrated threat operations officer assigned to the Army Cyber Joint Headquarters at Fort Gordon at the time of his arrest in December 2019.
Federal investigators said Musgrove joined the instant messaging mobile app Kik, where he discussed incest in a private group. On the same app, he sent pictures or video of an underage girl when he joined the chat.
The investigators said he kept sending messages back and forth on the app with an undercover agent until his arrest.
“We’re grateful to our FBI partners for their work in identifying and removing this threat to children. Their diligent and fast action in this case is inspiring,” U.S. Attorney Bobby Christine previously said in a statement. “There is no place in the Southern District where such a despicable predator will be allowed to hide from justice.”
