MOBILE, Ala. (AP) - An Alabama man has pleaded guilty to trying to entice a teenage girl for sex after prosecutors warned he could be faced with child pornography charges as well.

The guilty plea last week came just before Thomas George Tansey Jr. would have gone to trial on the enticement charge. Defense attorney Chris Knight said that Tansey agreed to the plea after authorities uncovered evidence of child pornography on his email
account.

Knight said "he decided to cut his losses."

Investigators say Tansey had 28 sexually explicit online conversations with an undercover agent posing as a 15-year-old girl
from August to November. The conversations culminated in a meeting at a Mobile mall in December, where investigators arrested him.
