HARRISONBURG — An Alexandria man will spend more than six years in prison for proposing sex online to an undercover officer posing as a 14-year-old boy.
Scott Marshall Hambrick, 55, was sentenced to 16 years and six months in prison Monday in Rockingham County Circuit Court for using a computer to solicit sex with a minor. He must serve six years and six months of that punishment, according to terms of a plea agreement.
Hambrick was arrested in February following an investigation by a task force that fights Internet-based crimes against children and includes officers from Harrisonburg and Rockingham County. He offered oral sex to a local undercover officer purporting to be a minor in December, Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney Chad Logan said.
