A cruise ship bartender charged with having sex with a 14-year-old girl who was vacationing with her parents was sentenced to just over three years in federal prison Thursday.
Hery Krispiyanto, 30, was sentenced in Orlando federal court for the one count of sexual abuse of a minor he pleaded guilty to in June.
In addition to the prison time, Krispiyanto was ordered to pay about $4,360 in restitution.
Court records said the teenager, identified as "T.W.," was aboard the Carnival Freedom, which left from the Port of Fort Lauderdale in April 2009.
While on the cruise, T.W. and her parents became acquainted with Krispiyanto.
T.W. told investigators she was alone on the upper deck of the ship one night when Krispiyanto walked up behind her, grabbed her arm and pulled her into a nearby employee-only room and closed the door, court records said.
Krispiyanto had sex with the girl, and then told her to leave, his plea agreement said.
T.W. reported the incident to her mother in August, and it was then reported to the FBI. He was indicted in Orlando federal court in May.
