A man who confessed to similar acts was sentenced to five years in prison after pleading guilty to traveling to Clinton County, Iowa to have sex with a minor. Ananas Berhanu Getachew, 28, of Bloomington, Minnesota will also serve five years of supervised released following his prison term and he will have to register as a sex offender. Police said in July 2010, Getachew chatted online with someone he thought was a 13-year-old girl. Getachew traveled from his home to Clinton County to meet the “girl” for sex July 29, 2010. The girl was actually an undercover Clinton County, Iowa detective. Getachew was arrested when he arrived in Clinton County.

Police said Getachew told them he “had engaged in sexual chats with other minors, and he was glad police arrested him before he succeeded in having a sexual encounter.” Source ( WQAD.Com)
