WHEELING, W.Va. (AP) _ A 32-year-old man pleaded guilty Monday to having sex with a 14-year-old girl he met in an Internet chat room.

Scott Russell of Rockville, Md., pleaded guilty to four misdemeanor sex charges. He faces up to a year in prison.

Investigators said the girl and Russell met online, and she went with him willingly to a Wheeling motel in August. Her parents called police when they learned she was not at a friend’s house as she had claimed.
