EL PASO, Texas (AP) — A former U.S. Border Patrol agent in West Texas has been sentenced to six years in prison for having sex with a 15-year-old girl.

The El Paso Times (http://bit.ly/1Pm7FTk ) reports 29-year-old Luis Angel Lozada pleaded guilty to three counts of sexual assault and three counts of sexual performance of a child.

Court records indicate Lozada was sentenced last week to six years in state prison on each count, with the terms running currently.

Prosecutors say Lozada had a sexual relationship with the teenager for more than a year before his arrest last March by El Paso police. Lozada was placed on administrative leave following his arrest.

Border Patrol officials did not immediately return messages Wednesday.
