usweekly.jpgFormer US Weekly editor Timothy McDarrah was sentenced to six years in prison this week following his December conviction for attempting to have sex with a 13-year-old girl. Using the email address ps41alum@aol.com (now inactive, so don't bother sending hate mail), McDarrah responded to a Craigslist post planted by the FBI and offered $200 to have sex with a barely teen-aged girl.


The FBI says McDarrah asked "What it'll cost for the cutest white 14-year-old girl with a pony tail in the whole 8th grade?" Investigators say he later communicated with 13 year-old "Julie" wanting to provide her with "sex lessons." The 45 year-old writers was convicted back in December after an eight day trial.


In the email exchanges he was unwittingly having with FBI agents, McDarrah tried to impress the fictional 13-year-old by name dropping celebrities he'd interviewed, like Rene Zellwegger and Jennifer Lopez.
