LAS VEGAS (AP) — A former marriage and family counselor was sentenced to 25 years in prison for soliciting a child to have sex with him and for possessing child pornography.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports Ian Alexander Pincombe of Las Vegas was found guilty last year of one count of coercion and enticement, one count of possession of child pornography, and one count of receipt of child pornography.

The Department of Justice say Pincombe must register as a sex offender.

Nevada interim U.S. Attorney Dayle Elieson says Pincombe sent sexually explicit messages to someone he believed to be a 13-year-old girl and kept a collection of violent child pornography.

Authorities say Henderson police arrested Pincombe in May 2014 at a shopping center parking lot where he thought he was to meet with a teen girl for a sexual encounter.
