Martynenko gets 38 years in prison for teen sexploitation scheme


For years, scores of teenage boys across the Midwest couldn't put a face or a name to the source of their torment: a man who distributed their nude images across the internet and even goaded some into sexual activity.

But on Tuesday, two of the young men sat in a federal courtroom in St. Paul as Anton Martynenko was sentenced to 38 years in prison for running a massive sextortion scheme described as the largest child porn production case ever prosecuted in Minnesota.

"We all can now be given freedom from this," said one victim, identified in court only as Grant, after the sentence came down.
