SACRAMENTO—A Sacramento man was sentenced to 10 years in federal prison on Thursday, September 25, 2014, after pleading guilty to attempted enticement of a minor for sex.
In addition to his sentence, Nicholas Perry, 37, was also ordered to lifetime probation after his release by U.S. District Judge Morrison C. England Jr.
In 2012, Perry began communicating with an undercover Sacramento sex crimes task force detective to be introduced to an underage girl for sex, according to court documents. Perry agreed to meet with the fictional father and daughter in order to have sex with the girl. He was arrested when he arrived at the meeting place.
Former Folsom swim coach Eric Johnston, 23, was sentenced in July for to trying to meet up with the girl for sex at a Rancho Cordova hotel. Following his arrest, officers used Johnston’s identity to send a message to Perry, who was also going to meet at the hotel, police officials said.
Perry arrived approximately 45 minutes later and was taken into custody.
