Colonel sentenced to ten years in prison for soliciting a minor for sex

PANAMA CITY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - A Colonel formerly stationed at Tyndall Air Force Base will now be spending time in prison for soliciting a minor for sex.

Thursday a judge sentenced Michael Garrett to ten years in prison and ten years of supervised release after his sentence.

In October, Garrett was found guilty in federal court for soliciting a minor for sex.

In May, Garrett went to what he thought was the home of a 14-year-old boy. He actually met an undercover Panama City Beach police officer instead.
