Prof. Gets 7 Years In Mom/ Girl Sex Sting

PHILADELPHIA (AP) – A former Rider University professor has been sentenced to more than seven years in federal prison stemming from an online sex sting.

Prosecutors say 65-yearold Austin Winther of Philadelphia tried to lure a supposed Idaho woman and her 13-year-old daughter to travel to Pennsylvania in March 2011 for a sexual tryst.

An undercover investigator was posing as the mother and daughter.

Winther pleaded guilty in November to an interstate sex charge and four obscenity counts.
