DENVER (AP) -- An Indiana man accused of traveling to Colorado to have sex with minors has been ordered to serve 34 years and four months in federal prison, followed by a lifetime on supervised release.

Thirty-five-year-old Steven Raines, of Fort Wayne, was sentenced Tuesday in Denver.

He pleaded guilty in October to distribution of child pornography and to attempted coercion and enticement to engage in sexual activity with a child.

Court documents show Raines was arrested in Colorado after chatting online with an undercover agent who was posing as the mother of two daughters younger than 16.

Investigators say Raines expressed interest in having sex with both girls and their mother.
