(LAS VEGAS, KXNT)–A man who transported a 16 year old girl to Las Vegas here to work as a prostitute has pleaded gulty in federal court to charges of transporting a minor for prostitution.

Andrew West , who is from Hayward, California, will be sentenced in April and faces a mandatory minimum 10 years in prison. He is to pay $250,000 restitution, and must register as a sex offender.

Prosecutors say West drove the 16 year old here from California, where she walked Boulder Highway looking for customers. She was arrested later when she solicited an undercover police officer in a motel parking lot.
