According to the court documents, he used the profile to ask young girls to create and send sexually explicit photos and videos of themselves to him. Records show Monson convinced the girls the content provided would be used to rate them as “princesses.” Documents show he asked them to follow specific requirements regarding nudity and sex acts that included bestiality and incest.

Court records also show in 2020 Monson used his cell phone to secretly record an eight-year-old girl who was getting dressed.

In October 2021, Monson pleaded guilty to two counts of production and attempted production of child pornography and one count of possession of child pornography.
