Knoxville — Jordan Donovan Cowman, 20, is scheduled to be sentenced tomorrow morning in Marion County District Court on the charge of sexual exploitation of a minor.

Cowman, 20, and Jake Christian Smith, 20, participated in a sex crime against a 15-year-old girl in Knoxville in February. Smith received oral sex from the victim while Cowman recorded it on video and distributed it to at least one other person. The Knoxville Police Department became aware of the crime months later, when another juvenile female assaulted the victim after watching the video. 

Cowman pled guilty on July 12, the same date Smith was sent to prison.
