A Pennsylvania man convicted of traveling to Delaware to have sex with someone he believed to be a 14-year-old girl has been sentenced to 10 years in prison.
Michael J. Barndt, 45, of Sellersville, Pa. was also ordered to register as a sex offender at sentencing Tuesday in federal court in Wilmington.
Prosecutors say Brandt, a former cook at a Pennsylvania school who also worked at a summer camp, posted an ad on craigslist.com expressing interest in a teenage fantasy liaison. An undercover investigator responded, pretending to be a 14-year-old girl.
Authorities say Barndt traveled to Concord Mall in Wilmington to meet the girl, and was arrested.
