NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - A northern New Jersey man has admitted inducing a young girl to engage in sexually explicit conduct while he took photos and videos.

Federal prosecutors say 59-year-old Pedro Rios, of Newark, pleaded guilty Tuesday to several counts in an indictment charging him with the sexual exploitation of a child and possession of child pornography. They say the girl was under the age of 12 when the incidents occurred.

Authorities say Rios would periodically drive the girl to a tractor-trailer truck in Union County, where he would have sexual contact with her and record the encounters.

Rios could face more than 90 years in prison when he’s sentenced July 7. He also will have to register as a sex offender.
