Man from France sentenced for child pornography

Thursday - 5/9/2013, 9:09pm  ET

WASHINGTON - A man from France has been sentenced to more than 6 years in prison for traveling to the U.S. to have sex with an under-aged child.

Thirty-year-old Jean Frederic Godoc of Paris had pleaded guilty in May 2012 in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. He was sentenced on Thursday.

According to court documents, Godoc communicated unknowingly with an undercover officer online. Godoc arranged a visit with what he thought were two young girls, and traveled to the U.S. on Dec. 22. When he arrived, he was arrested.

A search of Godoc's computer revealed several hundred images of child pornography.
