SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A former educator at East High School accused of arranging a sexual meeting with an officer who he thought was a 13-year-old girl has been sentenced.

A judge ordered 46-year-old Greydon Anthony Smith to serve five years in prison, and be placed on supervised release for ten additional years after his release.

According to court documents, in January, Smith arranged to meet who he thought was a 13-year-old girl at Veterans Park in Layton.

Smith allegedly told investigators he had hundreds of names on his Internet instant messaging buddy list and that he had met with seven or eight who were 18 years or younger.

The judge also ordered Smith to register with the state of Utah as a convicted sex offender.
