Cox was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri, along with two older sisters and two younger brothers. Cox's father was employed as a restaurant manager. Both of Cox's parents were heavy drinkers. Cox reports having witnessed his father rape his mother when Cox was seven years old. At the age of twelve, Cox's father died as a result of a ruptured ulcer. His death greatly impacted Cox, who has described his life as having ended
when his father died.
A year after the death of Cox's father, Cox's mother married a Merchant Marine. Cox's step-father was also a heavy drinker and verbally and physically abused Cox, his mother, and his siblings. 3 Due to the abuse, Cox frequently ran away from home. Cox began drinking alcohol at the age of twelve or thirteen. Cox graduated from high school and joined the United States Air Force in 1975. Cox received training in computer operations

In 1980, Cox was court-martialed and dishonorably discharged upon his conviction of multiple sex offenses involving four minor children. He received a sentence of eight At one point, his mother was wheelchair bound after having been severely beaten and pushed down the stairs by Cox's stepfather.
In January 1987, Cox married a convicted murderer he had met while incarcerated at Fort Leavenworth. The marriage was apparently one of convenience. After their release from prison, she became pregnant with another man's child. Cox agreed to marry her so the child would have a father. Cox and his wife lived together for less than one year, then separated. At six weeks of age, the child was given to his wife's parents, who
eventually adopted the baby.
Cox claims to have had eight prior sexual partners, all female. His first sexual experience occurred at the age of seventeen or eighteen with a girlfriend of the same age. His longest relationship was with a married woman with whom he lived from May 1994 to December 1996. His most recent relationship was in 1998. Cox also engaged in sexual intercourse with prostitutes approximately twelve times while stationed in Germany .
B . Sexual Offense History
Cox's first criminal conviction was in 1982. On several occasions between August 1980 and April 1981, Cox sexually assaulted four children he was babysitting while stationed in Germany. The victims were all female, ranging in age from seven to eleven. On August 30, 1980, Cox unlawfully struck two of the girls on the buttocks with his hand. On that same date, he rubbed the genitalia of one of the victims, pulled her pants down thereby exposing her genitalia, and inserted one of his fingers into her vagina. He forced the other victim to pull her pants down and thereupon rubbed her genitalia with his hand. In November 1980, Cox rubbed a child's "private parts" with his hand while she was clothed for the purpose of sexual
gratification. On December 23, 1980, Cox took indecent liberties with a victim by pulling her pants down, exposing her private parts, spreading her legs apart and inserting a candy cane into her vagina, which he forced her to lick after he had withdrawn it from her vagina. Also on that date, Cox committed sodomy upon one of the children by licking her genitalia. In April 1981, Cox grabbed a child by the waist and turned her upside down with her legs apart with the intent to gratify his sexual desires. As a result of these actions, Cox was convicted of sodomy of a child under the age of sixteen, three counts of assault and battery and six counts of indecent acts with a child under the age of sixteen. Cox served five years on an eight-
year term of imprisonment and was paroled on December 2, 1985.
While on parole from these offenses, Cox was arrested and charged with sexual abuse of a child for an October 1989 incident when Cox took two girls (approximately six or. seven years old) to the movies, then to a park. Although the charges were dismissed with prejudice in September 1991, Cox's parole was subsequently revoked as a result of the October 1989 incident and another incident of alleged touching of a. child about which Cox had been questioned by police in June 1991. Upon revocation of his parole, Cox was incarcerated at Fort Leavenworth from January 1992 until his discharge on December 7, 1992.
In or around 1997, Cox became involved in an international child pornography network known as the "Brotherhood." The Brotherhood operated electronic bulletin boards on which members post hyperlinks to child pornography images and web sites, The images posted could be exiting images or new images produced by the member. The bulletin boards had three main public areas: Ranchi, Panty Raiders/Lolita Lovers and Shadows. There are also semi-private and private boards which a member can access only after having posted a certain number of child pornography images and having been promoted within the group. Cox was an administrator for the Panty Raiders/Lolita Lovers group for a number of years. As an administrator, he helped maintain the bulletin board by deleting old or decommissioned child pornography links and policing chats, thereby facilitating the international distribution of child pornography.
In November 2002, Cox began exchanging sexually explicit emails with "Brenda," an undercover FBI agent posing as a fourteen-year-old girl in an internet chat room named "teen flirt." Using the screen name "YoungStuf f , " Cox told "Brenda" that he wanted to f*** her and spank her. Cox sent "Brenda" emails encouraging her to leave her home in Virginia and come to Colorado to be his "sex slave." Cox sent "Brenda" $60.00 for bus fare from Fredericksburg, Virginia, to Pueblo, Colorado. Cox instructed her to wear a short skirt, red tube top and no bra or panties and told her to meet him at a restaurant up the hill from the Pueblo bus station on January 10, 2003.
An undercover officer, dressed as Cox had instructed, got off the bus at Pueblo and met Cox at the restaurant. Cox identified himself to "Brenda" and was arrested. Cox admitted his actions and told the agents that he would have had sex with "Brenda" had she been willing.
Following Cox's arrest, agents conducted a search of Cox's home and computer. A forensic examination of the computer revealed in excess of 45,000 still images and videos of child pornography, including nineteen videos of a man raping, sodomizing and sexually abusing his biological daughter, who
appeared to be between three and five years of age at the time.
As a result of this conduct, Cox was charged with attempted enticement of a minor to travel in interstate commerce for sexual activity, in violation of 18 U.S.C. §§ 2422(a) and 2426(a); using the mail or interstate commerce to attempt to entice a minor to engage in sexual activity, in violation of 18 U.S.C, §§ 2422(b) and 2426(a); possession of child pornography, in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 2252A (a) ( 5 ) (B) ; and nineteen counts of receiving child pornography, in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 2252A(a) (2) (A) . On August 14, 2003, Cox pled guilty in the United States District Court for the District of Colorado to attempted enticement of a minor to travel in interstate commerce for sexual activity and one count of receiving child pornography. Cox was subsequently sentenced to 120 months' imprisonment and three years of supervised release. Cox has been in federal custody since that time.
Cox completed four years of sex offender treatment while incarcerated at Fort Leavenworth. Additionally, he participated in outpatient psychotherapy while on parole from 1985 to 1989. He has not participated in the sex offender treatment program while at FCI Butner.
