MIDLAND - A Midland judge has a new case to tackle, but for folks here in the Basin, it means one less child predator roaming the streets.

A federal judge sentenced Kenneth Daniel Spriggs to 30 months in prison, then he'll have 20 years of supervised release.

Spriggs has a long record of sex crimes.

Midland Police even contacted the U.S. Marshals - who opened an investigation to determine if Spriggs had crossed state lines, which is a federal offense.

Officials picked him up this summer in Wichita, Kansas.

Now, he's back in the Basin to face more federal charges.

Sprigg's case is one of 30 similar West Texas investigations, during the last two years.
