Retired Teacher Sentenced in Child Sex Case

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- A retired elementary school teacher from Florida has been sentenced to 30 years for traveling to Kentucky to have sex with two preteen girls.

U.S. District Judge Karen Caldwell sentenced 60-year-old Dale Chisena on Thursday for interstate travel to engage in sex with a person under 12 years of age.

Chisena, a retired second grade teacher from Orange County, Fla., pleaded guilty in April.

Officials say Chisena thought he was exchanging electronic messages early last year with a woman who had 9- and 11-year-old daughters. Instead, he was communicating with a cybercrime investigator from Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway's office.

He was arrested in February 2011 at Lexington's Blue Grass Airport.
