A Benton City man named Robert Cody Cameron Genoway has been sentenced to 20 years in prison for making child porn with a 13 year old girl. He pleaded guilty after allegations he had sex and choked a 13 year old girl and made child porn according to news reports. Genoway was arrested after a long investigation after an officer spotted an online ad looking for a "petite young teeny bopper” for sex. He continued communication for months online after Genoway thought he was talking to an 11 year old girl, but it was actually the officer. He also drove to multiple places in both Kennewick and Oregon to try and meet up with the girl.

After he was arrested, he admitted to having sex with another 13 year old girl, choking her, and shooting pictures and videos of her. Police were able to track down the girl and verify the story. They also found the pictures and videos of her on his computer. Genoway was sentenced to 20 years and then 30 years court supervision after he is released as a sex offender.
