KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) _ A federal judge hands a 22-year prison sentence to a Kansas City, Kan., man who arranged for numerous men to have sex with a teenage girl.

Thirty-six-year-old Jesse Herd III was also ordered to serve the rest of his life on supervised release, and warned that if he didn't obey the law, he'd go back to prison.

Judge Kathryn Vratil ordered Herd to pay $14,440 to cover counseling for his victim and to register as a sex offender.

Herd pleaded guilty last month to taking the girl across state lines to engage in prostitution. He admitted to arranging for the girl to have sex with adult men, as many as 20 at a time at a Kansas City, Mo., adult entertainment shop.

Herd also admitted that he had sex with the girl dozens of times.

The abuse started when the girl was 14.
