California man gets 10 years in Texas child sex case


A federal judge in Corpus Christi on Monday sentenced 34-year-old Jeffrey Todd Howard of Los Angeles. Howard in April was convicted of soliciting a child for sex through the Internet.

A woman in February 2012 reported disturbing online communications with a man asking her to obtain children so he could have sex with the youngsters.

An undercover Corpus Christi police officer went online. Investigators say Howard thought he was making arrangements to have sex with the person's 11-year-old and 14-year-old daughters.

Howard was arrested last November in Los Angeles. Police recovered more than 1,300 images related to sexual interest in children.
