Bismarck man sentenced for coercion
BISMARCK — A 20-year-old Bismarck native was sentenced to 30 months in federal prison for coercion and enticement of a minor.
The undercover officer in this case said the 14-year-old girl was his foster daughter, and that he was selling her virginity. In emails and text messages, Ray negotiated to trade $50 and several PlayStation 3 games for oral sex from the girl.
Ray was arrested after going to an agreed-upon meeting location in Bismarck.
Ray will be on supervised probation for five years after he’s released from prison.
