WINCHESTER -- A Frederick County man was sentenced to serve five years in prison Tuesday for attempting to meet someone he thought was a 14-year-old girl for sex at James Wood High School last year.

Jeremy E. Venskoske, 22, formerly of Myers Lane, Winchester, pleaded guilty to 12 charges Tuesday in Frederick County Circuit Court as part of a plea agreement with prosecutors.

He was sentenced to five years each on charges of attempted indecent liberties and computer solicitation, but the sentences will run concurrently.

Venskoske received suspended sentences on 10 other related charges. He will receive credit for time already served in jail.

"I just want to say I'm [very] sorry for what I did," Venskoske said in court Tuesday.

Authorities received a complaint in April that Venskoske was sending inappropriate messages to the girl on MySpace, officials have said. The Sheriff's Office took over communication and set up the meeting in May at the high school, where Venskoske was arrested without incident.

Upon his release, Venskoske will serve 10 years on probation.
