TX man pleads guilty to enticing SE MN child

HOUSTON (AP) - A Texan has pleaded guilty to enticing a 9-year-old Minnesota girl he met online into posing nude and emailing him the photo.

Prosecutors in Houston say 33-year-old Steve Correa-Franco of Spring remains in custody until sentencing in March. He faces up to life in prison after pleading guilty Thursday to enticement of a child and possession of child pornography.

Police in Rochester, Minn., in April responded to a father's complaint about his daughter chatting online with an alleged 16-year-old boy.

Prosecutors say the person was Correa-Franco, who talked about having sex and asked the girl for a naked image. She used a game system to take the photo and email it to him.

Authorities say Correa-Franco's laptop computer had more than 200 child porn images, including the Minnesota girl's photo.
