A former Marion man who attempted to entice a minor to engage in sex was sentenced Thursday to more than 12 years in federal prison.

Michael Glawe, 31, who now lives in Ankeny, pleaded guilty in December to one count of attempted enticement of a minor. During that hearing, Glawe admitted he attempted to entice an undercover officer who was posing as a minor to meet for unlawful sex between 2010 and 2011.

According to court documents, Glawe chatted online with a Clinton County Sheriff's deputy who was posing as a 14-year-old girl. He asked her for nude photos and to have sex with her. He also made arrangements two times to meet with her but then cancelled.

Glawe also had similar chats online with an Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation agent posing as a 13-year-old girl in Sept. 2011, according to court documents. During this chat, Glawe offered the girl money in exchange for sex and nude photos. A week later, the DCI agent posed as a stripper with two children and Glawe discussed having sex with her 15-year-old girl.

In October 2011, Glawe set up a meeting with the 15-year-old girl in a parking lot, where authorities were waiting for him, according to court documents. He was asked if he intended to have sex with the girl and he said "yes and no."

Glawe was also ordered to serve a 10- year term of supervised release. He must comply with all sex offender registration and public notification requirements.
