ATLANTA (AP) Federal prosecutors say a man busted in an undercover child sex sting has been sentenced to 10 years in prison.

Authorities say 37-year-old Carl Skow of Norcross was sentenced Wednesday for enticing a child to engage in illegal sexual activity.

Prosecutors say Skow responded to an Internet ad and tried buying a girl he believed was from Guatemala from an undercover federal agent.

Authorities say Skow and the agent had several discussions and Skow eventually agreed to pay the agent $2,500 a year for the girl. Skow met the agent at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in July of 2011 and was arrested.

Officials say they found child porn on the man's computer and a list of rules for the girl to follow posted on a wall inside his home.
