The jury returned a verdict after hearing testimony and reviewing evidence during a six-day trial. Cox faces up to 240 years of imprisonment for these offenses; he will be required to serve a term of at least five years of supervised release after his prison term has been completed; and he will also be required to register as a sexual offender.

The evidence presented at trial showed that Cox sexually abused and exploited seven children during 2012, 2013, and 2014. He lured the children into his home, convinced them to trust him, and then sexually abused and exploited them. Cox photographed and videotaped the children engaged in sexually explicit conduct in his home, personally taking photographs and setting up video cameras to record the exploitation, and sometimes using another person to take the photographs. Cox stored the images and video on multiple devices in his home in Albion.
