A man who pleaded guilty for sexually soliciting a 13-year-old and prompting an interstate Amber Alert will spend over 7 years in jail.

28-year-old Daniel Berger of Haskell, New Jersey admitted to travelling to Rhode Island in July of 2013 to meet with a 13-year-old girl he met on the internet. 

He then took the girl to his New Jersey home with the intent to engage in sexual activities.

The girl was located by the FBI at Berger’s home. 

Berger faced a judge Thursday. 

After his prison sentence, Berger will serve 15 years of supervised release, must register as a sex offender and must pay $909.39 in restitution to the victim’s family.

Prosecutors recommended the sentence of seven years and three months in jail.
