ST. LOUIS — A man from the Chicago suburbs faces five years in federal prison after he admitted traveling to the St. Louis area to have sex with a 14-year-old girl.

Michael Anderson, 32, claimed he was 19 and a St. Louis-area resident when he first began communicating with the girl via Snapchat in July, his plea agreement said. Between July 30 and Aug. 3, the girl sneaked out of her house to meet and have sex with Anderson at local hotels, his plea said.

Anderson, of Wheaton, Illinois, pleaded guilty Wednesday in U.S. District Court in St. Louis to a charge of traveling with intent to engage in illicit sexual conduct. In the plea, both prosecutors and Anderson's lawyers agreed to recommend five years in prison when he's sentenced later this year.
