Dee Kosh posted on Instagram stating that he is going to prison.

In his Instagram post he said:

If you’re reading this, that means I’m on the way to prison.

Despite what the headlines might suggest, I am extremely sorry for things I’ve done. And now it’s time to pay the price.

It’s been 2 long and hard years and this chapter is finally coming to a close. I lost everything, my career, loved ones, the trust of my family and so much more. I go to face my mistakes broken and I hope I can pick up the pieces in the future.

There is alot to be said about me and my character and my case, there are alot of things that I’d like to clarify and hopefully, I’ll be able to talk about everything one day. But for now. Goodbye”

Previously a petition went viral calling for a heavier penalty

A petition was set up a day before his sentencing and the petitioner called for a jail sentence of at least 3 years.

The three victims were between the ages of 15 to 23 at the time of his offence.

The 33-year-old YouTuber pleaded guilty to offering cash to an underaged boy for explicit services, as well as the attempted exploitation of a young person.

He had offered between $400 to $2,000 for explicit acts with the victims after reaching out to them on social media.

None of the underaged boys accepted his offer, but he also secretly filmed a man who had accepted his offer of explicit activity.

Dee Kosh pleaded guilty to one charge of communicating with an underaged person to obtain explicit services, one charge of attempting to exploit a minor, and one charge of making an obscene video.

Four more similar charges will be taken into consideration for his sentencing, including making an obscene video.

Dee Kosh was also examined at the Institute of Mental Health after his lawyer obtained a psychiatrist report on whether Dee Kosh is a paedophile and what are the risks of him reoffending.
