PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - A Texas man accused of trying to pay for sex with underage girls during the 2013 Sturgis Motorcycle Rally has been sentenced to 15 years in federal prison.

Fifty-five-year-old Timothy Gravens, of Grapevine, Texas, was one of nine people arrested and federally indicted for commercial sex trafficking in an undercover sting operation.

U.S. Attorney Brendan Johnson says Gravens was sentenced on Monday to the prison term and ordered to forfeit a cellphone and two cameras. Once Gravens is released from prison he will be on supervised release for the rest of his life.
