CLEARFIELD – A 40-year-old Clearfield County man has been sentenced to serve three to seven years in state prison for soliciting obscene photos from young girls.

According to court documents, Reed Meeker of Osceola Mills was accused of asking for inappropriate photos many times as he texted with a decoy with an online child predator exploitation group.

Investigators say Meeker thought he was communicating with two girls younger than 12.

County Judge Paul Cherry also ruled that Meeker is a sexually-violent predator and he must register with law enforcement under Megan’s Law.

A representative of the Pennsylvania Sex Offender’s Board testified during Friday’s sentencing that this is Meeker’s fourth conviction of a sexual crime.
