WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) A Wichita man was sentenced Monday to 187 months in federal prison for trafficking a 17-year-old girl for sex.

John H. Dickerson, 35, Wichita, Kan., pleaded guilty in August to one count of the sex trafficking of a minor and one count of unlawful possession of a firearm following a felony conviction.

Dickerson and the teen were arrested during a human-trafficking enforcement operation conducted by the FBI and the Wichita Police Department.

A Wichita police detective answered an advertisement on an adult services website. He arranged to meet a sex worker at a hotel in Wichita and to pay $200 for an hour of sex.

When Dickerson dropped off a 17-year-old girl at the detective’s room, he and the girl were taken into custody.

Investigators say Dickerson had been paid several times to take the girl to meet customers.
