LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) - A federal judge has sentenced a 29-year-old Lubbock man to more than 11 years in prison for attempting to entice a 15-year-old girl to engage in sexual activity with him.

Mike Lozano pleaded guilty in September and was sentenced Friday to 135 months in prison by U.S. District Judge Sam Cummings.

U.S. Attorney John Parker says Lozano for about three weeks in July used social media to try to entice the girl into sex acts even she told him she was only 15.

On July 22, Parker says the girl’s Facebook account, unknown to Lozano, was taken over by another person and Lozano made arrangements to meet her. He was arrested at the meeting site.

Parker says the case is part of a nationwide initiative against child sexual exploitation.
