COLUMBUS, Ga. - A Columbus man was sentenced to 120 months in federal prison after admitting to enticing two minor females ages 14 and 15 with promises of gifts, a shopping spree and dinner in exchange for sex.

John David Przenkop, 47, will have to serve a lifetime of supervision following his release from prison. The sentence was handed down Tuesday, August 19 by U.S. District Court Judge Clay Land.

Federal officials say Przenkop made contact with the two minor victims via the social media site, MySpace. Przenkop transported the two minor victims from Phenix City, Alabama to his residence in Columbus, Georgia. While at his residence, Przenkop engaged in sexual conduct with both minor victims which he also video-recorded.  A search of  Przenkop's residence uncovered video recordings of the sexual encounters with the two minor females as well as other females, adults and juveniles.

“Cases involving the sexual exploitation of minors are priorities of my office and of the United States Department of Justice.  There is no parole in the Federal system.  After serving his sentence of ten years in the penitentiary, Mr. Przenkop will be supervised by federal authorities for the remainder of his life in order to insure that he does not prey upon our children again,” said United States Attorney Michael J. Moore.

The incident happened on around February 18/19, 2010. The case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Columbus Police Department.
