A Kansas man has been sentenced to 14 years in federal prison for driving to Missouri because he believed a woman was willing to sell her daughter, 10, to become his sex slave.

Federal prosecutors say Michael David Mitchell, 64, of Ottawa was also ordered Monday to pay $5,000 to the Justice of Victims of Trafficking Act.

Mitchell pleaded guilty last month to interstate travel to engage in unlawful sexual conduct.

Prosecutors say Mitchell communicated with an undercover office posing as a broker who would connect him with a woman willing to sell her child to become his sex slave.

Mitchell said took $5,000 from Ottawa to Independence, Missouri, to meet the woman.
