Florida: Osceola County man, Christopher Lee Cumberland sentenced to 30 years for attempting to entice a minor

Osceola County resident, Christopher Lee Cumberland was sentenced Friday to 365 months in prison, to be followed by a lifetime of supervised release after previously pleading guilty to attempting to entice a minor to engage in sexual activity.


According to the court, in March 2019, a law enforcement officer acting in an undercover capacity observed that Cumberland posted a message on an internet group messaging forum that used language commonly associated with individuals seeking children for sexual purposes. The undercover made contact with Cumberland online. Between March 28, 2019 and April 10, 2019, the undercover and Cumberland exchanged more than 500 messages.

During the communications, Cumberland expressed an interest in meeting in person so that he could engage in sexual activity with a minor.  Later, Cumberland met with the undercover agent in the Southern District of Florida with the intent to commit a sex act with a minor.

Cumberland also admitted that he had sexual contact with numerous minors.
