Robert Francis Blasey, 65, of Zimmerman, Minn., pleaded guilty in January in Cass County District Court to luring a minor by computer and gross sexual imposition.

Ryan Younggren, an assistant Cass County state's attorney, argued for an eight-year prison stint, but said the five-year sentence wasn't disappointing given Blasey's cooperation with authorities and contrition.

Blasey, a traveling salesman, was arrested Dec. 2 in Bismarck. His victim was from West Fargo.
