MICHAEL BARNDT thought he was meeting a 14-year-old girl for sex last June when he checked into a Wilmington, Del., hotel and bought her black lace panties.
But the teen he chatted with online was a federal Department of Homeland Security agent.
Barndt, 40, of Sellersville, Bucks County, was sentenced yesterday in U.S. District Court in Delaware to 10 years in prison. He pleaded guilty to attempted coercion and enticement of a minor.
At the time of his arrest, he was working as a chef at Lakeside School in Horsham Township. He served as the football coach at Springfield Township Middle School in the fall. And in the summer, he worked as a camp counselor in Blue Bell.
