A pilot from Sacramento, California was sentenced to life in prison after traveling to the Philippines to have sex with minors.

Michael Clemans, 57, was found guilty of trying to have sex with Filipino girls as young as 7 years old, four months ago.

He received a life sentence for his crimes on Tuesday. His crimes included salacious chat exchange with a Filipino woman to try arrange sex with underage girls.

Clemans wrote, "I want to be able to get my photos and arrange sex with underage girls...I do not want you or me to get into trouble so we have to be very very careful.”

In another message he wrote, "That is the reason I mentioned orphanages or runaways...or abandoned girls from the typhoons...I am looking for girls that are homeless that will not argue and will have no obligation but to have sex."

He also paid the woman he was chatting with in the Philippines $6,000 to take nude photos of the kids he was interested in having sex with.

More than 27,000 pornographic images of children were found on his computer at his parents’ house in Sacramento.
