A North Texas man must serve 10 years in federal prison after a child sex investigation led to more than two dozen homemade bombs.
Mark Duesterberg of Royse City was sentenced Thursday in Houston.
The 34-year-old Duesterberg, who formerly lived in Spring, earlier pleaded guilty to enticing a minor and to unlawful making of weapons.
Prosecutors say Duesterberg last year communicated online with some he thought was a girl and tried to entice her into a sexual relationship.
The latest news from around North Texas.
Duesterberg arranged to meet the person, who turned out to be an undercover agent, and was arrested at the scene.
Authorities found seven pipe bombs in his vehicle.
A search of Duesterberg's home led to more than two dozen homemade bombs and items for making explosives.
Agents also found an unregistered machine gun.
