RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - A 31-year-old Stafford man has pleaded guilty to attempted production of child pornography.

Justin Fox entered the plea in federal court in Richmond on Wednesday.

Fox was indicted by a federal grand jury in March. He faces a maximum penalty of 30 years in prison and a mandatory-minimum term of 15 years in prison when he’s sentenced on August 27.

In a statement of facts filed with the plea agreement, Fox admitted that he engaged in online messaging with a 13-year-old boy. During those conversations, he portrayed himself as a young female and asked the boy to create and send child pornography via online messenger.
