Judge Jeffrey Kritzer issued the sentence.

The victim reported that Khaoone was threatening to disseminate naked pictures and videos he had of her on his cell phone.

Khaoone was sentenced to five years of probation in 2018 and required to register as a predatory offender.

In addition to prison, Khaoone must also pay $135 in fines.
