RUPERT — A man received a suspended prison sentence Sept. 30 after he pleaded guilty to enticing a child over the internet.

Minidoka County District Judge Jonathan Brody sentenced Daniel Lynn Seal to six years in prison with three years fixed before suspending the sentence and placing him on four years of probation.

Seal was charged in November with felony enticing a child through the internet, video image or other communication device.

Rupert police said Seal responded online to an undercover police officer who was posing as a 15-year-old girl.

The officer said Seal sent explicit photos of himself to the officer and said he wanted to have sex with the girl. He set up a meeting with the girl at the Wayside Cafe, but was met by police instead.

The judge ordered Seal to pay all court costs and $100 in restitution for a DNA sample. He will also have to provide a thumbprint and register as a sex offender.
