A two-time sex offender pleaded guilty Monday to luring a 16-year-old West Fargo girl by computer and was sentenced more than four years in prison.

Eugene Winford Hinson Jr., 50, was sentenced to a 50-month state prison term after his guilty plea Monday in Cass County District Court, said Assistant Cass County Attorney Ryan Younggren.

In court records, Hinson was accused of sending 12 lewd photos from his cellphone to the 16-year-old. He then agreed to meet a cop posing as the girl at a store in south Fargo.

At the time of his arrest, Hinson had been assessed as a moderate risk to reoffend and was living in a tent along the Red River.

Younggren said Hinson has prior convictions in Florida and South Carolina for sex offenses involving children.
