H e has already been sentenced to 20 years in prison. Now a former student-teacher from Connecticut has been given more prison time.

Micah Brown, 31, faced a judge in Onondaga County court Wednesday morning, and was sentenced to an additional one to three years in prison. Brown admitted to meeting a then 15-year-old Marcellus girl online, and coming to Central New York to have sex with her. He was arrested two years ago at a motel in DeWitt.

"There was evidence to suggest Brown had contact with other underage girls, online," says Cindi Newtown, a prosecutor in the case. "For the next 20 years he will be in prison, and that will be good for the children of our society."

Last Thursday, Brown was sentenced to 20 years in prison on federal charges for using the internet to engage in sexual relationships with underage girls.
