AKRON, Ohio (AP) - A northeast Ohio Man was sentenced to four years in prison for having sex with a 15-year-old runaway he met on the online dating site Tinder.

Northeast Ohio Media Group reports (https://bit.ly/1MxIg7G ) 31-year-old Brandon Cisar pleaded guilty on July 14 to a third-degree felony charge of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor. He will register his address with the county sheriff every six months for 25 years after being released.

Summit County Common Pleas Judge Todd McKenney said he handed down the sentence because the Cuyahoga Falls resident knew the girl was just 15.

Prosecutors say Cisar met the girl, a runaway from Shaker Heights, through the dating site Tinder.

Cisar said at sentencing that the incident “ripped apart” his family and he hoped the girl would someday recover.
