LA man re-sentenced to longer term in Thailand sex case

A Los Angeles man who worked as an English teacher in Bangkok will spend 25 years in federal prison for traveling to Thailand to have sex with minors, prosecutors said today.

Steven Erik Prowler, 61, was re-sentenced in U.S. District Court in downtown Los Angeles after prosecutors appealed a 10-year sentence previously handed down in the case.

U.S. District Judge Consuelo B. Marshall told the defendant on Friday that he was receiving the quarter-century sentence due, in part, to the nature of his conduct, which she described as particularly “depraved.”

Prowler pleaded guilty in 2007 to one count each of traveling abroad with the intent to engage in illicit sexual conduct and illicit sexual contact with a minor in a foreign place.
