Dustyn Pence was sent to prison Tuesday for five years after he earlier admitted to sexually touching minor boys and having naked pictures and videos of them.
That was the sentence imposed by Hamilton County Common Pleas Court Judge John "Skip" West, who could have sent Pence to prison for seven years or given him probation.
The attorney blamed for Pence blamed Pence's boyfriend, Michael Buchanan, 25, for leading Pence to commit the crimes.
"There's not a day that goes by that I don't regret it. I'm sorry," Pence said. "I'm a failure to my own family."
Pence, of Walnut Hills, was convicted of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor, illegal use of a minor in nudity-oriented material and three counts of pandering sexually oriented matter involving a minor. His boy victims were ages 13, 15 and 17. In the home Pence and Buchanan shared, police found videos showing one of Pence's underage male relatives showering and one of Pence having sex with another underage male relative.
Buchanan faces similar charges when he goes to trial Oct. 12.
Tuesday's sentence isn't the end of Pence's legal woes.
He faces additional charges in Clermont County because the video showing him having sex with an underage boy was shot there.

A singer in a girl band is facing the threat of a long jail term for having unprotected sex with several men without telling them she was HIV positive.
Nadja Benaissa appeared in court yesterday charged with grievous bodily harm for allegedly infecting one of her lovers with the virus.
The 28-year-old has also been charged with attempted aggravated assault for allegedly having unprotected sex with two other men who did not contract HIV.
Benaissa, who is a member of Germany's most successful girl band, No Angels, and has performed in the Eurovision Song Contest, denies infecting anyone deliberately.
But she told the District Court of Darmstadt she was 'careless during those days' and admitted she did not tell her sexual partners about her condition, adding tearfully: 'I am sorry with all my heart.'
A 34-year-old former lover, who is now HIV positive, claimed the singer's management tried to buy his silence after he became infected.

Negro Cop May Have Used Badge To Extort Woman For Sex

The attorney for a Cincinnati police officer on trial admitted Tuesday that Detective Julian Steele received oral sex from a woman whose son Steele put in juvenile jail.
Jay Clark, Steele's attorney, blamed the mother for trying to use her sexuality to use Steele to help get her son released.
"She had motive to take advantage of or get one up on Detective Steele," Clark told jurors hearing the case against Steele, charged with rape, extortion, abduction, sexual battery and intimidation of a witness.
The mother, Clark said, instigated the sex.
"Julian, being human, said yes," Clark said. "Julian had a lapse in judgment, used poor judgment and was weak."
But Special Prosecutor Daniel "Woody" Breyer said Steele - as a 14-year officer with nine years as a detective - was a rogue cop who used his badge and authority to lock up an innocent teen so he could get sexual favors from the teen's mom.
"He used his special powers as a policeman to gain sexual favors, sexual conduct," Breyer told jurors.
