A former basketball and track coach could face three decades in prison after admitting he sent to an undercover FBI agent explicit photographs of him abusing a young child in his home.

U.S. attorneys are recommending a 30-year prison sentence for Sean Jeffrey Haga, 32, after Haga admitted Monday to a single count of sexual exploitation of a minor, in U.S. District Court in Medford.

On June 17, 2016, Haga chatted with the FBI agent using Kik, a smartphone messaging app from a Canadian company often seen as anonymous because it doesn’t require users to provide an email address or phone number, according to court documents.

During the Kik exchange, Haga told the undercover officer he was engaging in sexual activity with a child and expressed interest in traveling and having sex with the officer’s minor daughter, according to a court document signed by Haga Monday and a press release issued by the U.S. Department of Justice Tuesday morning.

Haga messaged pictures to the undercover agent of him exposing his genitals to the child in the picture, among other photographs of sexual abuse.

FBI agents in Medford worked through the night to identify Haga as the one associated with the Kik user ID, and Medford agents worked through the weekend to obtain search and arrest warrants at Haga’s Bandon home, according to the press release.

Haga was arrested without incident at 7:45 p.m. June 18, 2016, the day after the exchange. He formerly worked for the Bandon School District as a track coach and basketball coach. He was an educational assistant in a computer lab at the time of his arrest.

The federal case led to a separate Coos County child abuse investigation involving a victim who was younger than 12, according to documents filed in Coos County Circuit Court.

In February, Haga was sentenced in Coos County Circuit Court to 25 years in prison followed by lifetime post-prison supervision after pleading guilty to first-degree sodomy involving the victim in the photographs.

In the federal case, Haga faces a mandatory-minimum 15 years in prison and a maximum penalty of 30 years in prison, $250,000 fine and five years of supervised release, according to the Department of Justice. Federal prosecutors intend to seek a 30-year prison sentence for Haga, court documents show, and will advocate that he serve his state and federal prison sentences simultaneously.

Haga will be sentenced in Medford July 19, according to the Department of Justice. He is lodged in the Jackson County Jail, records show.
