OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – A 43-year-old Oklahoma City man has pleaded guilty to traveling to Colorado to pick up a 13-year-old girl and bringing her to Oklahoma to have sex with her.

Federal prosecutors said that Mark Avery Sumpter entered the plea Monday.

Investigators said Sumpter traveled to Colorado in June to pick up the victim after exchanging messages and sexually explicit photos online. Prosecutors say Sumpter allegedly had sexual contact with the girl on the trip from Colorado and at Sumpter’s apartment in Oklahoma City.

Sumpter was indicted by a federal grand jury in August.

A sentencing hearing is expected to be set within three months. Sumpter faces a minimum of 10 years to life in prison.
