ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) - A western New York man is facing a sentence of up to life in prison after admitting he intended to traffic a girl for sex.

Federal prosecutors announced Tuesday that Brandon McNeal pleaded guilty in federal court in Rochester to conspiracy to commit sex trafficking of a minor.

Prosecutors say the 24-year-old Rochester man conspired with others to recruit a young female for sex acts and knew she was under 18 years old.

Prosecutors say McNeal had a minor work as a prostitute between July 2015 and August 2015 and posted advertisements for her on an Internet site for classified ads.

McNeal arranged for her to meet clients in a motel room he paid for.

McNeal is expected to be sentenced on May 16.
