SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) – A Hinesville man has been sentenced for enticing a child for sexual activity.

According to the U.S. Department of Justice, a U.S. District judge sentenced Casey Desmuke, 31, of Hinesville, to 151 months in federal prison.

The over 12 years sentence comes after Desmuke entered a guilty plea to one count of coercion and enticement.

“No sentence could ever erase the trauma that scars a child for life,” said Chris Hacker, Special Agent in Charge of FBI Atlanta stated. “We can only take solace in the fact that Desmuke won’t be able to harm another child for a long time.”

Authorities arrested Desmuke in July 2019. Investigators say he had communicated with a 12-year-old and brought the child to his home to engage in sexual activity.

Desmuke also faces pending state charges for similar activity that occurred in 2010 in Waco, Texas.

In addition to his prison sentence, Desmuke also must pay $50,000 in restitution. After completion of his prison term, Desmuke must serve 10 years of supervised release.
