Alabama man admits trying to have sex with underage girls

By The Associated Press

ATLANTA (AP) — An Alabama man has pleaded guilty to trying to meet underage girls for sex.

The U.S. attorney's office in Atlanta said in a news release Wednesday that 40-year-old Christopher Bradley Braden of Jasper pleaded guilty to one count of enticing a minor to engage in illegal sexual activity, which carries mandatory 10 year sentence.

Prosecutors say Braden arranged through an app called Meet24 to connect with a 13-year-old girl in December 2016 and a 14-year-old girl in May 2017, both in Georgia. In both cases, he was actually communicating with undercover officers, and police arrested him when he arrived.

Prior to the scheduled meetings, prosecutors say Braden asked about the teens' bodies and sexual experience and sent them videos and photos of his genitals.

Sentencing is scheduled for Oct. 11.
