By  | 

(AP)-- A registered sex offender from Kansas City, Kansas has been sentenced to 15 years in federal prison for taking a 16-year-old from Virginia across state lines for sex.

Logan Viquesney, 21, was sentenced Tuesday. He pleaded guilty in June to interstate transportation of a minor for sexual activity.

In his plea, Viquesney admitted that he communicated with the girl on the internet while she was staying with her grandparents in Virginia.

The girl was reported missing from her grandparents' home in May 2016.

Investigators learned that Viquesney drove to Virginia and picked up the girl.

He was arrested when he and the girl arrived in KCK.
