Old Man Gets|10 Years for Sex

SAN DIEGO (CN) - A 71-year-old San Diego real estate agent was sentenced Monday to 10 years in federal prison after admitting he paid for sex with a 13-year-old girl.

Michael E. Lustig, of Rancho Santa Fe, pleaded guilty in July to prostitution-related crimes. A grand jury indicted him in October 2013.

San Diego sheriff's deputies arrested him in June 2012 in an operation against prostitution in the wealthy suburb of Encinitas.

Lustig was charged with three counts of interstate travel in aid of racketeering enterprises. Evidence against him included texts from his cell phone.
