TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - A Utah man has been sentenced to four years in federal prison for transporting an Arizona girl to Texas with intent to have sex with her.

Federal prosecutors say 21-year-old Jordan Munah Yow Choy Anthony also will be on lifetime probation and have to register as a sex offender.

Anthony pleaded guilty in the case last November.

Prosecutors say Anthony lives in Pleasant Grove, Utah.

He was accused of using the Internet and a cell phone to communicate with a 14-year-old girl in Tucson in March 2011.

Authorities say Anthony then traveled from Utah to Tucson to pick up the girl at her residence and took her to Galveston, Texas, with plans to head to Florida.

They say Anthony was arrested in Galveston by police on March 18, 2011.
