OSHKOSH, Wis. (WBAY) - An Upper Peninsula man who federal prosecutors say traveled to Wisconsin in hopes of having sex with a 15-year-old girl in Oshkosh pleaded guilty Thursday.

Scott Sundberg, of Ishpeming, Mich., thought he was messaging the parent of a teenage girl and sent “pornographic images of children engaged in explicit sexual activity,” federal prosecutors claimed. He was actually communicating with a law enforcement agent working with the FBI and Winnebago County Sheriff’s Office.

A federal grand jury indicted Sundberg, 42, on a charge of using a computer to attempt to persuade, induce, or entice a minor to engage in unlawful sexual activity. The crime carries a minimum 10 years in prison.

He’s scheduled to be sentenced on January 18.
