Man Pleads Guilty To Attempting To Entice Child
LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) — U.S. Attorney Stephanie A. Finley says a 40-year-old Pennsylvania man has pleaded guilty to attempting to entice a child in Lake Charles, Louisiana, to engage in sexual activity.
Finley says Timothy Kelly, of Jeannette, Pennsylvania, pleaded guilty Monday before U.S. District Judge Richard T. Haik to one count of using a facility in interstate commerce to attempt to cause a minor to engage in elicit sexual activity.
According to evidence presented at the guilty plea, Kelly began communicating with a 13-year-old girl in early 2013. He discussed sexually explicit conduct and sent explicit images of himself to the girl. Prosecutors say Kelly also requested that the girl have sex with him and discussed traveling to Louisiana for that purpose.
