Va. man gets 100 years for soliciting sex from minor online
A judge in Louisa County has sentenced a man to 100 years in prison for soliciting sex from a child younger than 15 over the Internet.
The jury's recommended sentence was imposed on 55-year-old George Spiker Jr. on Monday. He was convicted in January.
Prosecutors say Spiker entered online chat rooms and later drove to meet someone he thought was a 13-year-old girl. Instead, he met officers from the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.
Prosecutors say that during the explicit online chats, Spiker offered clothing, jewelry and money for college in exchange for sex acts and used a webcam to expose himself.
During the sentencing phase, the jury learned Spiker previously was convicted of second-degree sexual assault of a minor in West Virginia.
