A Lancaster man convicted of attempted receipt of child pornography, was sentenced today.

68-year-old Joseph Marranca was sentenced to five years in prison and five years supervised release.

According to attorneys, Marranca posted an ad on Craigslist that read in part "looking for a teenager."

Marranca engaged in chat conversations and began talking to a female that said she as 14-years old. During the chats, Marranca asked for pictures and made arrangements to meet her.

The individual he was actually chatting with was an undercover police officer.

Marranca was arrested after he drove to the park to meet the officer.
