Sparta man sentenced to 20 years for child sexploitation
A Sparta, Wis., man was sentenced to 20 years in prison for trafficking and sexually exploiting children.
Zachariah Svoboda was charged with 34 criminal counts related to sex offenses involving children.
The 29-year-old Svoboda pled guilty last fall to just five of the charges against him, including sexual exploitation of a child and possessing child porn.
Sparta police and other investigators found pornographic images on Svoboda’s computer and uncovered evidence that he used social media to meet and arrange sexual encounters with underage girls.
