NORTH KINGSTOWN, R.I. (WLNE) — Federal prosecutors said that a North Kingstown man admitted to sending provocative videos to who he believed was a minor.

In federal court Monday, Neil Streich, 59, pled guilty to importation or transportation of obscene matters.

United States Attorney Zachary Cunha said that in 2020, Streich sent three sexually explicit videos of himself through internet-based text and social media platforms, including Kik.

The 10-year-old girl Streich thought he was talking to turned out to be an undercover FBI agent, Cunha said.

According to court documents, the 59-year-old talked to the person he believed to be a young girl for about a week.

During a search of his home, agents found electronic devices that contained images and videos from Streich’s conversations with the undercover agent.

He is scheduled to be sentenced on Jan. 23, 20223.
