A former Shreveport radio disc jockey for KTUX-FM has been sentenced to 10 years in federal prison for using the internet to lure underage girls for sex, according to United States Attorney’s office news release Monday.
Heath Edward Hill, 32, pleaded guilty to attempted coercion and enticement Sept. 17 and was sentenced Friday, the release states. An undercover operation began after Caddo sheriff’s deputies learned that an underage girl and her underage friend had been sexually solicited online via MySpace messages from a “DJ Skinny,” according to the release.
Hill, whose on-air name was DJ Skinny, asked the girls for nude pictures in exchange for alcohol and concert tickets made available through his work as a disc jockey on 99X The Rock Station. The girls hand ed over access to their MySpace accounts and agents with the Northwest Louisiana Crimes Against Children Task Force pretending to be the girls intercepted solicitations by Hill.
Hill showed up to meet the girls at a prearranged point and was instead arrested. The case was brought as part of Project Safe Neighborhood, a nationwide initiative launched in May 2006 to combat the sexual exploitation of children, the release states.
