Online Child Predator Sentenced
A 21-year old Elmendorf airman facing two counts of child enticement was sentenced to four years in jail Monday.
Patrick Flores-Muller tried to exploit two 14-year-old girls in an Internet chat-room during March of 2006. However, what he didn't know was that the two girls were actually undercover police officers.
The two officers say Flores-Muller made several explicit comments before trying to lure them to an Anchorage movie theater on March 28. That's where police say they found Flores-Muller waiting with baby oil and condoms. Police say he admitted plans to take two girls back to Elmendorf. Police also found several images of child-pornography on his home computer.
The judge sentenced Flores-Muller to a total of four years in jail with 23 months suspended.
