SEATTLE (AP) - Authorities say a child psychologist in Seattle has been sentenced to over six years in prison for seeking sex with a minor.

The U.S. Justice Department says 62-year-old Jonathan Wulf received the sentence Friday which includes 78 months in prison and five years of supervised release for attempted travel to engage in illicit sexual conduct and attempted receipt of child pornography.

Officials say Wulf posted an ad on Craigslist and began a conversation with what turned out to be an undercover agent for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigation. Wulf said through various communications that he wanted to have sex with the agent’s fictional 12-year-old stepdaughter.

He was arrested in September 2015 after arriving at a hotel for the sexual encounter. The Washington State Department of Health has suspended Wulf’s license.
