CALDWELL, Idaho -

A 45-year-old Idaho man who targeted young runaways for sex will spend at least eight years behind bars.
    
Friday's sentence comes after James Kirk of Nampa was found guilty in April by a 3rd District Court jury of lewd conduct with a child and sexual battery of a minor child.
    
According to prosecutors, Kirk met two girls, aged 13 and 17, walking around Nampa last August.
    
They say he had sex with both in a hotel room, crimes witness by two other runaway girls.
    
State Judge Juneal C. Kerrick contends Kirk was a serious risk to reoffend, since he'd been convicted previously of six felonies.
    
Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Erica Kallin called Kirk a career felon who has demonstrated blatant disregard for laws and the rights and safety of vulnerable kids.
