SAN FRANCISCO — A Washington man who went by “pervyguy40” online has been sentenced to nine years and seven months in federal prison after his arrest in an undercover sting designed to target would-be child molesters, court records show.

Christopher Michael David, 43, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Charles Breyer at a June court hearing.

David pleaded guilty to attempted travel with intent to engage in illicit sexual conduct, a federal offense.

Prosecutors say David booked a flight from Tacoma, Washington to the Bay Area after arranging to molest the purported children of an undercover cop posing as a 31-year-old San Francisco woman with a son and daughter aged 7 and 9. David allegedly talked about how he was interested in incest and wanted to “teach” sexual things to the woman’s kids, writing graphic descriptions that included various lewd acts and a desire to molest them into their teens, according to court records.

Assistant federal public defender Gabriela Bischoff, who represented David, wrote in a sentencing memo that he now accepts both the seriousness of his crimes and the need for a lengthy prison term.

“Sitting here in the jail for the past 18 months, going through the discovery, reading about the images I sent, reading the words I said, repulses me,” Bischoff quoted David as saying. “I can’t believe I said these vulgar disgusting things or had these thoughts… I know that is not who I truly am… I feel ashamed and I’m so sorry.”

Prosecutors say that David told the undercover officer that he possessed child pornography as well, which he said he traded for online. During their talks, David allegedly sent the undercover cop several videos depicting prepubescent children being sexually abused, and talked about molesting his own children. When the officer asked David for video proof that he’d molested kids, David allegedly balked.

“I’m not that brave to put myself out there. Already nervous sending you these,” he told the officer, according to the criminal complaint.

Bischoff wrote that David’s world spun out of control in the wake of a dissolving marriage, a motorcycle crash, and stints in Iraq for the U.S. Army that left him with PTSD. She wrote that as his life fell apart, “he began to spiral into darker and darker pornography, darker and darker conversation, and darker and darker thoughts.”

David Moore becomes the latest Chicago Bears wide receiver to be sidelined with an injury

Chicago Bears coach Matt Eberflus looked at a reporter after Tuesday’s Family Fest practice at Soldier Field and asked his own question.

“Have you played receiver?” he asked, putting on his recruiting hat from his days as a college coach.

No, the Bears haven’t reached that point yet, but their depth continues to be depleted after yet another wide receiver was injured during practice.

David Moore suffered an apparent right leg injury during one-on-one drills, and trainers spent several minutes examining him before calling for a cart. Moore didn’t put weight on his leg as trainers helped him to the cart.

Moore was one of five Bears receivers who missed practice Tuesday. Darnell Mooney and Equanimeous St. Brown are their top two healthy receivers, but the injuries have made the depth beyond that murky.

“It does make it difficult,” Eberflus said. “You lose men on a 90-man roster and it makes it difficult for the other guys. We’re at that situation where we’ve got to just keep on working through it. Next man up and the whole roster is going to get more reps at that position.”

Eberflus didn’t have an immediate update on Moore, who totaled 78 catches for 1,163 yards and 13 touchdowns over four seasons with the Seattle Seahawks.

But Eberflus did confirm that N’Keal Harry’s ankle injury will sideline him for a significant amount of time. NFL Network reported it is a high ankle sprain that could keep him out six weeks.

Byron Pringle is out with a quadriceps injury that Eberflus classified as more significant than day to day, though he doesn’t think it will affect Pringle’s start to the regular season. Velus Jones Jr. and Dante Pettis are also out with undisclosed injuries.

Pringle and Jones worked out on the Soldier Field sideline with other injured players Tuesday.

The status of tight end Cole Kmet also is worth watching. He sat out team work late in practice Tuesday. The Bears also were without tight ends Ryan Griffin and James O’Shaughnessy.

Defensive lineman Angelo Blackson and cornerbacks Kyler Gordon and Duke Shelley were present but didn’t practice.

“It’s just next man up,” St. Brown said. “It’s football, injuries happen. You hate to see your fellow teammates go down, but in the middle of practice, the next person has to step up and fill the shoes of wherever we are missing guys. You hate to see it and it happens every year, but, yeah, people have to step up.”
