WASHINGTON (AP) - A United Kingdom resident has been sentenced to 16 years in prison after pleading guilty to charges of coercion and traveling with intent to have sex with an Ohio child.

Richard Castle, 47, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Timothy S. Black in Dayton, Ohio.

According to the Justice Department, Castle admitted that he flew to Dayton in June 2011 to engage in illicit sexual relations and stayed approximately three weeks. Castle also admitted that he provided obscene materials, according to the DOJ statement released Tuesday.

A federal grand jury indicted Castle in February 2012. Castle pleaded guilty on Oct. 3, 2013.
