PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (AP) - A former Port St. Lucie police officer has been sentenced for sex charges involving an underage girl.

The TC Palm reports (http://bit.ly/1Kj0gEU) 31-year-old Myron Andravious Pratt pleaded no contest Feb. 8 to two counts of unlawful sexual activity with a minor.

Pratt was arrested in November 2014. He was sentenced to 40 months behind bars for each count with both sentences to be served concurrently.

Authorities say the 16-year-old girl told St. Lucie County Sheriff's Office investigators she twice picked up Pratt at the Port St. Lucie Police Department and the two drove to a secluded area and had sex in her car. The first encounter was determined to be Nov. 17, 2014.

Officials say Pratt also worked as a Vero Beach police officer from 2011 to August 2013.
