BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - An Idaho man arrested in a federal sex trafficking sting in North Dakota has pleaded guilty in federal court to luring an underage girl to the state for sex work.

The Bismarck Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1Jqiy17 ) that Michael Sackett entered his plea to an amended charge on Monday, a day before he was to stand trial.

Sackett could face up to 10 years in prison. The original charge of attempted sex trafficking of children carried a potential life sentence.

The charge against Sackett resulted from a sting operation in the western North Dakota oil patch in 2013.
