SACRAMENTO, Calif. — George Hristovski, 59, of Elverta, was sentenced today by U.S. District Judge Garland E. Burrell Jr. to 10 years in prison for attempted enticement of a minor, U.S. Attorney McGregor W. Scott announced.
According to court documents, Hristovski posted an online advertisement seeking a mother who was willing to allow him to have sex with her daughter. An undercover agent with the Placer County Sheriff’s Department responded to the advertisement and began to correspond with Hristovski, posing as a mother and eventually her 13-year-old daughter. Hristovski was arrested on August 4, 2014, after making explicit demands for pornographic images of the 13-year-old girl that he believed he was communicating with, and for attempting to arrange a meeting with the girl for the purpose of having sex with her.
This case was the product of an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation with assistance from the Placer County Sheriff’s Department. Assistant U.S. Attorney Michele Beckwith prosecuted the case.
This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse. Led by the United States Attorneys’ Offices and the Criminal Division’s Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section, Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state, and local resources to locate, apprehend, and prosecute those who sexually exploit children, and to identify and rescue victims.
