COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

A Columbus man is facing federal charges stemming from an investigation that began over three years ago.

John Przenkop, 46, stood before Judge Hyles for his first appearance in federal court Wednesday.

He is accused by law enforcement of soliciting two teenagers who he met on a social networking site. Investigators said he paid the girls to be his personal prostitutes.

Columbus police raided his home in 2010 and also discovered child pornography.

He was originally charged in local courts and now his case is being heard at the federal level.

More details on the case are expected to be revealed at an 11 a.m. Friday arraignment.
