ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- A former U.S. Central Command official has been sentenced to 10 years in federal prison for attempting to entice a minor for sex.

A federal judge in Orlando on Thursday also sentenced 50-year-old Stephen Governale to 10 years of supervision and ordered that he register as a sex offender after his release from prison.

He pleaded guilty earlier this year.

A 17-year-old teen told investigators he had traveled with Governale on two occasions and engaged in sexual acts with him. Governale was arrested last September.

At the time of his arrest, Governale was a protocol officer at Central Command in Tampa.
