HAMMOND | A Minneapolis man accused of transporting a minor across state lines to engage in prostitution was sentenced to 11 years in prison, according to court records.

Lamar D. Johnson was sentenced Tuesday in federal court. A judge started to sentence Johnson in February but it was delayed to hash out the details of his supervised release after he serves his prison term. 

According to court records, during his 10 years of supervised release Johnson will not be allowed to have contact with a minor unless it is his own child or has the permission from his probation officer, the minor's parent or guardian. 

He pleaded guilty in August to transporting a minor from 2011 to 2012 through Indiana, New Mexico, Nevada, Ohio and Iowa with the intent of having the girl engage in prostitution, according to court records.
