Canadian Man Sentenced For Transporting Kansas Girl For Sex

WICHITA, KAN. – A Canadian man has been sentenced to eight years in federal prison for picking up a 12-year-old girl in El Dorado, Kan., and taking her out of state for the purpose of having sex with her, U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said today.

Stewart Kenneth Cody McGill, 21, Bewdley, Ontario, pleaded guilty to one count of travel with intent to engage in illicit sexual conduct. In his plea, he admitted he drove from Canada to El Dorado, Kan., to pick up a 12-year-old girl and have sex with her. Officers later found McGill and the girl parked on a country road in Michigan. They found text messages on the girl’s cell phone in which McGill indicated he intended to have sex with her and he was aware of her age.

Grissom commended the FBI, the El Dorado Police Department, the Michigan Department of State Police and Assistant U.S. Attorney Jason Hart for their work on the case.
