A chiropractor and part-time martial arts instructor has been sentenced to 30 years in federal prison for posing as a teenage boy and convincing other teenage boys to send him graphic photos and videos.

Michael Macaluso, 38, of Marietta, Ga., was convicted in a jury trial in December of getting at least two boys to send him graphic photos and videos of themselves, according to Marietta Patch.

According to court testimony, Macaluso would pose online as a teenage boy (sometimes gay, sometimes straight) or girl in an attempt to make friends with underage boys and convince them to send him the graphic materials.

He was arrested after one of the victims contacted police and said Macaluso had threatened to share the photos with his classmates. Another victim came forward, saying Macaluso had tried to convince him to film a gay sex scene, according to Project Q Atlanta.

When Macaluso was arrested in 2009, his computer contained thousands of images of underage men, some nude and some engaged in sex with each other.

Upon his release, Macaluso will be required to register as a sex offender.
