TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - Federal prosecutors in New Jersey say a New York man convicted of child sex trafficking charges has been sentenced to 15 years in prison.

Wilbur Senat also will be on lifetime supervised release once he’s freed from prison. The 26-year-old Spring Valley man was sentenced Wednesday.

Senat was convicted of child sex trafficking and transporting a minor to engage in prostitution. The girl’s age wasn’t disclosed.

Prosecutors say the victim met Senat in the summer of 2011 in Haverstraw, New York. He later took her to a motel in Nyack, New York, and gave her marijuana and alcohol before forcing her to engage in prostitution.

Senat and the girl then traveled by bus from New York to Philadelphia the next day so she could engage in further acts of prostitution.
