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.

    For heavens sake. Thats in trapment. Thats like me trying to sale a Mustang GT for a dang good price and when the unsuspecting buyer comes a thousand miles to buy it he finds out it's a Volvo. I guess this teacher feels he could have got arrested in his own state, at least he'd be home.
