A 50-year-old Texas man is sentenced to serve over five years in federal prison for coercion and enticement of a minor.
Lawrence E. Hundley, Jr., pleaded guilty and was sentenced by Judge Daniel Hovland.
Hundley was arrested in November of 2013 in an investigation aimed at "johns" trying to arrange sex with underage victims online.
The human trafficking investigation was called Operation Vigilant Guardian.
The investigation resulted in the arrest of fourteen defendants on federal charges in Williston and Dickinson.
Hundley will also be on supervised release for five years following his sentence.
