BANGOR, Maine (AP) - A 43-year-old New Hampshire man who traveled to Maine to have sex with what he thought was a 13-year-old girl has been sentenced to more than three years in federal prison.

Chad Amodio, of Milton, New Hampshire, was sentenced Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Bangor to three years and four months behind bars and five years of probation. He pleaded guilty in November to a charge of interstate travel to have sex with a minor.

Prosecutors say he began having inappropriate online sexual conversations with a 13-year-old girl from northern Maine in March 2014.

Police were tipped off about the conversations and an undercover officer took control of the minor’s account. Amodio sought a meeting with the girl and was arrested when he showed up in Maine last May.
