MOSCOW, Idaho -- A northern Idaho man who pleaded guilty to enticing a child over the Internet has been sentenced to 30 days in jail and five years probation.

Forty-year-old Kendall W. Heustis of Moscow was sentenced Friday in 2nd District Court.

Heustis must also complete sex offender treatment, register as a sex offender, and is not allowed to use the Internet except as allowed under his probation requirements.

Heustis was charged after an investigating officer with Oregon's Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force posed as a 13-year-old girl from Oregon as part of a sting operation between April and July 2008 and Heustis exchanged explicit information through chat rooms and Web cameras.
