SP)--An Enid man was sentenced earlier this week to 30 years in prison, with 20 years suspended, after pleading guilty to several charges. Enid News and Eagle reports 20 year-old Zayne Anthony Nafus pleaded guilty Monday, to counts of lewd or indecent proposals to a child under 12 years old, manufacturing juvenile pornography, possessing juvenile pornography and violating the Oklahoma Computer Crimes Act. According to an affidavit filed in the case, two men contacted Enid Police Department in April 2022, with concerns of approximately 20 images discovered on Nafus’ cellphone.
