41-year-old IN man sentenced for sex with 15-year-old NY girl

WHITE PLAINS, NY (AP) - A man from Indiana has been sentenced to 12 years in prison for taking a 15-year-old New York girl home for sex.

Federal prosecutors say the girl from Hyde Park, N.Y., disappeared in September 2009. Investigators learned she had been corresponding by e-mail with Foster Creager of Angola, Indiana.

The next day, they found the two together in Angola, had the girl examined and found Creager's DNA.

Creager pleaded guilty in February to transporting a minor across state lines for sex. He said he and his mother drove her to Indiana.

Defense attorney Vincent Briccetti would not comment Tuesday.

The mother admitted in July that she concealed her knowledge of the crime and was sentenced to 16 months.
