WASHINGTON - A man from France has pleaded guilty to traveling to the U.S. to have sex with an under-aged child.

Twenty-nine-year-old Jean Frederic Godoc of Paris also pleaded guilty to transportation of child pornography. Sentencing is set for July 20.

According to court documents, Godoc communicated unknowingly with an undercover officer online. Godoc arranged a visit with what he thought were two young girls, and traveled to the U.S. on Dec. 22.

A search of Godoc's computer revealed several hundred images of child pornography.
