Prison time for Canadian man who drove to FW for underage sex

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (ADAMS) – A Canadian man is looking at eight years in prison for making the trek to northern Indiana to have sex with a teenage girl.

A judge yesterday sentenced 41-year-old Ala El Bashatly to prison for coming into this country to meet the girl at her home in Auburn and have sex with her.

He pleaded guilty to the charges. Investigators say the girl’s father went to authorities after he found $200 that his daughter claimed Bashatly gave her. Bashatly was arrested back in 2016 when he tried to meet the girl again outside the JC Penny’s in Fort Wayne.
