With some of the minors, Outler established “dominance/submission” relationships in which he “verbally belittled and humiliated” the minorsand some even came to “self-harm” producing burns or cuts.

Some of the girls were forced to perform degrading acts and then threatened to publish them on the Internet, if the slightest “did not comply with their requests for the production of sexually explicit acts.”

Outler was also sentenced to 25 years of supervised release and will be recorded as a “sex offense” upon his release from prison.
