DALLAS (AP) - A Texan who pleaded guilty to possession of child pornography after being arrested trying to buy a 9-year-old girl for sex must serve 10 years in prison.
A federal judge in Dallas today sentenced Kevin Moake (moak) of Flower Mound to the maximum term.
The 50-year-old was ordered to register as a sex offender and will be on lifetime supervised release after he gets out.
The U.S. Attorney's Office says Moake acknowledged driving to a fast-food restaurant in 2007 for what he thought was an attempt to buy a girl for sex.
To spend the night with the nonexistent girl, he paid an undercover officer $100, which was a down payment in a "rent-to-own plan."
