LAREDO, Texas (KGNS) - A former police officer from Odessa is heading to prison for attempting to entice a minor on Craigslist.
Forty-two-year-old Michael Bennett plead guilty last March.
On Thursday a judge sentenced Bennett to 120 months in federal prison.
According to court records, Bennett communicated with who he thought was a 14-year-old girl through Craigslist.
The teen was really a federal undercover agent. Bennett flew to Odessa and was arrested on the spot.
