According to the Straits Times, Amos Yee was sentenced to 6 years in jail after he pleaded guilty to grooming a 14-year-old girl and asking for nude photos.
It was heard in court that Yee befriended the 14-year-old and began courtship in Cook County.
Yee told the girl to role-play to his desires despite being fully aware of her age, Yee was 20-years-old at the time of the crime.
Apartment was raided
He was arrested back in October 2020 by US Marshals who raided his apartment in Chicago’s Norwood Park East estate.
His photo was later published by Chicago Police for his arrest.
He is associated as a convicted class one felon, which will affect his future in the USA. He will not be able to apply for federal or state grants, live in public housing, or receive federal cash assistance, SSI, or food stamps, among other benefits.
During the hearing, the judge told Yee that pleading guilty might result in Yee getting deported from the country and banned from entering the US.
