FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

Feb. 6, 2013

WICHITA, KAN. – A Canadian man has pleaded guilty to 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.

Sentencing is set for April 24. Both parties have agreed to recommend a sentence of eight years in federal prison, followed by five years on supervised release. Grissom commended the FBI, the El Dorado Police Department and Assistant U.S. Attorney Jason Hart for their work on the case.
