WACO, Texas (AP) - A trucker from Kentucky must serve more than four years in federal prison for trying to transport prostitutes he planned to pick up in Texas.

Anthony Wayne Farrior of Paducah, Kentucky, was sentenced Wednesday in Waco. The 28-year-old trucker in July pleaded guilty to violating the Mann Act, which deals with prostitution and human trafficking.

Prosecutors say Farrior in February, with help from a cellphone, answered an Internet advertisement and stopped at a truck stop in Waco, seeking to have sex with women. The ad was placed by an undercover officer.

Authorities say Farrior agreed to transport women to work as prostitutes at truck stops around the country, in exchange for part of the cash earned.

Farrior was arrested March 6 in Waco.
