FORT LAUDERDALE, FL (WFLX) - A cruise ship bartender is going to prison for raping a teenage passenger.

Thirty-year-old Airy Krispi-Yanto was sentenced to just over three years in federal prison. He is charged with having sex with a 14-year-old girl who was vacationing with her parents aboard the Carnival Freedom in April 2009. The ship left from the Port of Fort Lauderdale.

The victim told investigators she was on a deck alone when the suspect grabbed her from behind and forced her into a room.

Krispi-Yanto is also ordered to pay about $4,300 in restitution.
