Eau Claire County (WQOW) – A South Dakota man has pleaded guilty to trying to set up sex with a minor in Altoona.
Alex Bawek pleaded guilty to child enticement in Eau Claire County Court in exchange for two other charges being dismissed.
Last December, Bawek responded to a Craigslist ad from a 14-year-old girl, but it was actually an Altoona police officer.
He was arrested when he tried to meet the girl for sex.
Bawek will be sentenced in early January. He is facing up to 25 years in prison.
