WASHINGTON (AP) - A 30-year-old man has pleaded guilty to enticing a 15-year-old girl to travel from Seattle to Washington to work as a prostitute.

Thirty-three-year-old Jason Whren of Washington pleaded guilty Monday in federal court in D.C. to first-degree sexual abuse of a child and pandering of a minor. He faces a possible life term at sentencing June 11.

According to government evidence, Whren contacted the girl on Facebook and enticed her to travel to Washington in December 2012. Prosecutors say Whren had sex with the girl, then forced her to engage in prostitution by walking the streets and responding to Internet advertisements.
