ST. LOUIS COUNTY — A trucker from Wisconsin was sentenced in federal court Thursday to 42 months in prison for traveling to Missouri to have sex with a teenage girl.

Joseph Anthony Yoast, 42, was caught in an online sting being run by St. Louis County police and targeting those seeking to sexually exploit minors, court records show. He responded to an online post about “family incest” in June 2019, and began corresponding with a police detective pretending to be the 40-year-old mother of a 14-year-old girl.
