BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A man has been sentenced to five years in federal prison for attempting to arrange a sexual encounter with an 8-year-old girl in Bismarck.

Thirty-five-year-old Frank Rush of Colorado Springs, Colorado, was sentenced Friday. He was charged last spring after communicating with an undercover officer conducting a human trafficking sting.

KXMB-TV (https://bit.ly/1HKpjg0 ) reports Rush was arrested May 26 at a Bismarck hotel where thought he would be having sex with a young girl in exchange for $400.

A second charge of attempted human trafficking of a minor was dropped late last year in a deal with prosecutors.
