Martin L. "Vlad" Evanick, drummer of the now-defunct St. Louis metal band Core of Your Nightmares, was sentenced to nineteen years in federal prison Monday for child pornography charges. Evanick, 31, pleaded guilty to the charge in July. He was arrested in October 2012, after the mother of the victim contacted the Collinsville Police Department in April and alleged Evanick was having a sexual relationship with her sixteen-year-old daughter.

According to federal prosecutors, the offenses pertaining to this arrest happened in June of 2010 and a year later in 2011.

Evanick admitted to having sex with the young girl "five to seven times" and to then taking nude pictures on his phone (which he claims occurred after she turned seventeen). Evanick was 30 at the time. It is those nude photos that have landed him in prison on child pornography charges. He has been sitting in jail since the initial October arrest.

A second girl came forward during the course of the trial and claimed that Evanick had also had sex with her when she was still a minor, only fourteen years old. That incident was reported in November of 2012. Evanick's sentence is 235 months in federal prison, to be followed by twenty years of court supervision upon release. He will also spend the rest of his life as a registered sex offender.

Here is the full press release issued after Evanick pleaded guilty to the charge:

A Collinsville man pled guilty on July 22, 2013, to Production of Child Pornography, in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Section 2251(a), the United States Attorney for the Southern District of Illinois, Stephen R. Wigginton, announced today. Martin L. Evanick, a/k/a "Vlad," 31, Collinsville, IL, faces a term of imprisonment of not less than fifteen (15) years but not more than thirty (30) years, a fine up to $250,000, and a term of supervised release of five (5) years to life. Sentencing is scheduled for November 4, 2013, in East St. Louis, Illinois. Evanick has been in the custody of the United States Marshals Service since his arraignment on October 19, 2012. The investigation began on April 21, 2012, when the victim's mother contacted the Collinsville Police Department regarding a possible sexual assault on her 16 year old minor daughter by a 30 year old man, later identified as Defendant Martin L. Evanick. During interviews with authorities, the victim revealed that she had a sexual relationship with Evanick, and that Evanick had also taken nude pictures of her using his cellular telephone. During the investigation, Evanick's cellular telephone was found to contain four photographs of the victim, taken when she was 17 years old, that constituted child pornography. In an interview with agents, Evanick admitted taking the sexually explicit photos of the victim.
