TACOMA, Wash. (AP) - A court clerk was sentenced to about two years in prison for using court records to find underage girls to beat up and have sex with.

The News Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/1Tm80cY ) that James Porter was sentenced Friday. It ended his 20-year career as a Pierce County Superior Court deputy clerk.

Porter had previously pleaded guilty to commercial sexual abuse of a minor.

According to charging papers, Porter gave someone a ride home in June and later used court records to find the person’s phone number. Months later, he contacted the person saying he was looking for a woman for sex and to assault. He said he knew the person had a history of prostitution.

He later asked for an underage girl. The person contacted the police.
