Internet child sexual predator enters guilty plea

ATLANTA – Michael J. Moore, United States Attorney for the Middle District of Georgia, announced that John David Przenkop, age 47, of Columbus, Georgia, appeared in federal court on Monday, February 3, 2014, and entered a guilty plea to transportation of minors with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity. The guilty plea was entered before the Honorable Clay D. Land, U.S. District Court Judge in Columbus, Georgia.

As a part of his guilty plea, Mr. Przenkop admitted that on or about February 18/19, 2010, he enticed two minor females, ages 14 and 15, with promises of gifts, a shopping spree, and dinner in exchange for sex. Mr. Przenkop made contact with the two minor victims via the social media site MySpace. Mr. Przenkop transported the two minor victims from Phenix City, Alabama to his residence in Columbus, Georgia. While at his residence, Mr. Pzenkop engaged in sexual conduct with both minor victims, which he also video-recorded. A search of Mr. Przenkop’s residence uncovered video recordings of the sexual encounters with the two minor females.

Mr. Przenkop faces a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years’ imprisonment up to life in prison and a maximum fine of $250,000 or both. The court has scheduled sentencing for April 29, 2014 in Columbus, Georgia.

The case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Columbus Police Department. Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael T. Solis is prosecuting the case.

U.S. Attorney Michael Moore stated, “The prosecution of this form of human trafficking that preys on vulnerable victims is a priority of my office and of the United States Department of Justice.”

Ricky Maxwell, Acting Special Agent in Charge, FBI Atlanta Field Office, stated, “Today’s guilty plea removes a dangerous individual from our streets. Mr. Przenkop preyed upon the vulnerabilities of these minor children in a manner that society simply will not tolerate. The FBI asks that anyone with information regarding such incidents of child exploitation contact their nearest FBI field office.”
