SIOUX FALLS, South Dakota — A Belle Fourche man has been sentenced to 10 years in prison on a federal sex trafficking charge.

U.S. Attorney Brendan Johnson says 43-year-old James Larive Jr. was indicted as a result of an undercover sex trafficking operation at the 2013 Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. He was one of nine men arrested in the sting.

Authorities say Larive responded to a Craigslist advertisement posted by undercover agents that purported to offer young girls for sex.

A jury in April convicted Larvie of commercial sex trafficking.
