Former NASCAR driver Rick Crawford was sentenced Monday to 130 months in federal prison after his conviction in August on one count of enticing a minor.
Crawford, who won five races while competing from 1997 to 2013 in NASCAR’s truck series, was arrested in February and convicted by a jury after a trial in which prosecutors said he agreed to pay $50 to $75 to have sex with a 12-year-old girl, a violation of the federal law of enticing a minor for a criminal sexual activity.
In addition to the 130-month prison sentence, Crawford, 60, will have to serve 10 years of supervised release after his release from prison, according to the sentence issued by Judge Roy B. Dalton Jr. in Orlando, Florida. He also was fined $5,000.
Crawford, who has been in jail since his conviction in August, argued against a lengthy sentence in a court filing last week.
