Online connection with Austintown teen brings federal prison term

Posted: Updated:
CLEVELAND, Ohio -

A New York man is going to federal prison for having sex with an Austintown Township teenager he met online.  After pleaded guilty in January to a federal charge of crossing state lines to engage in illicit sexual conduct, Gary Green Jr., was sentenced on Tuesday to five-and-a-half years in prison.

Prosecutors say Green had been exchanging explicit texts and photos with the girl for months before meeting her at a motel in the township and engaging in sex acts with her.

Green was arrested after messages were discovered by the girl's father.

After Green serves his sentence, he will be placed on probation for ten years.
