A 21-year-old San Diego man was sentenced Monday to five years and eight months in federal prison for enticing an underage girl into prostitution.

Christopher Black admitted that he placed ads on Craigslist to find prostitution clients. Black said he drove the teenage girl to the "dates" and then kept the money.

Two other co-defendants have also pleaded guilty and are set for sentencing in May. For his Craiglist ads, Black took pictures of the girl "wearing lingerie and in provocative poses," according to court documents.
