WALTHILL, Neb. -- Over a year in prison was given to a man from Walthill following his conviction that involved a minor.

U.S. Attorney Steven Russell said 23-year-old Michael Tyndall, Jr., of Walthill, was sentenced on May 15, 2023. He was convicted for transfer of obscene material to a minor. Tyndall will serve 18 months in prison  with a two-year term of supervised release after. There is no parole in the federal system.

According to court documents, Tyndall used Snapchat to send an obscene photograph of his genitals to a 13-year-old minor in October 2022. Tyndall messaged the minor victim questions about their sexual history and preferences. The minor victim reported Tyndall’s conduct to a trusted adult, who notified law enforcement.

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation
