RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — A Pennsylvania firefighter who was accused of trying to arrange a meeting for sex with a 10-year-old girl in Virginia has pleaded guilty to attempted coercion and enticement charges.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Virginia said in a statement that 58-year-old Brian Kosanovich entered the plea Thursday.

He was arrested in Midlothian, Virginia, a suburb of Richmond, by FBI agents in February. The statement says he had traveled there to meet with a woman he met online who said she had a 10-year-old daughter. The woman was actually an undercover FBI agent.

Kosanovich could face life in prison when he’s sentenced next year.
