COLCHESTER, Vt. -

Police say a Colchester man posed as a teenage boy on the internet to get a 12-year-old girl to send him nude photos.

Derek Thomas, 46, was sentenced to at least 15 years in jail.

Investigators say Thomas threatened the victim, and then promised her gifts to get her to comply.

He was busted through a federal law enforcement effort dubbed "Operation Green Wave."

In all, nine men were caught during the sting.
