ABILENE, TX (KCBD) -

A convicted sex offender was sentenced to more than 14 years in federal prison on Tuesday for having sex with two West Texas girls he met online.

Robert Blaine Harris was sentenced in Fort Worth after pleading guilty to a charge of enticement of a minor and aiding and abetting.

Prosecutors say the 50-year-old began an online relationship with a 13-year-old girl from Abilene back in December.

Harris traveled to Abilene from Fort Worth in January, picked up that minor, plus another 13-year-old girl and took them back to his house.

Investigators say Harris had sex with both girls during the week before the teens were located by Fort Worth police.
