PRINCETON (WVVA) - The Virginia man accused of enticing a 16 year old girl to send nude photos of herself over the Internet has entered a plea.

John Reynolds, 39, of Honaker, pleaded guilty in Mercer County to two counts of soliciting a minor via computer.

He originally faced 14 charges.

Prosecutors say between November 2012 and February 2013 Reynolds sent nude photos of himself to the victim in order to entice her to do the same.

Reynolds will be required to register as sex offender once he is released from prison.

A sentencing hearing is scheduled for January.
