Updated:
BANGOR, Maine (AP) -- An Oklahoma man accused of trying to help his girlfriend enter the country illegally pleaded guilty Thursday to an immigration law violation and was sentenced to 13 days in prison.

Federal prosecutors say 29-year-old Jay Benjamin Bost of was also fined $5,000 and made subject to six months of supervised release.

Authorities alleged that on July 30th while attempting to enter the United States at Coburn Gore, Bost lied to customs and border patrol officers by telling them he didn't have a passenger in his vehicle.

Authorities said Bost's 18-year-old girlfriend, French citizen Alizee Guiet, was hiding in a sleeping bag under a homemade bed in the back of Bost's Ford Bronco.

Guiet had been denied entry into the United States at Jackman one day earlier for visa waiver program violations.

According to a lawyer who represented Guiet, the couple had been camping in Canada and were heading to Oklahoma when they were arrested.
