SEATTLE — A Canadian man has been sentenced to six years in U.S. federal prison for travelling to Washington state to have sex with a teenage girl.

The King County Sheriff's Office says Tyler Beavis was arrested in December after school officials discovered he was chatting with a 14-year-old female student on her school computer.

The school district contacted authorities.

Beavis had claimed he was 22 but he actually was 31 and lived in Canada.

During chats, Beavis told the girl that he would fly to Seattle and get a hotel room so they could spend the weekend together.

Detectives learned that Beavis booked a flight from Toronto to Seattle in January.

When he got off the plane, he headed to the girl's school but deputies followed him and he was arrested.
