BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - A Baton Rouge man has admitted that he sold a 15-year-old girl into prostitution two years ago.

The Advocate reports 31-year-old Erick Jermaine Banks pleaded guilty Monday to one count of conspiracy to traffic a child in the commercial sex trade.

U.S. Attorney Donald J. Cazayoux Jr. says the crime carries a possible penalty of life imprisonment.

U.S. District Judge James J. Brady did not immediately schedule a sentencing date for Banks.

Baton Rouge police arrested Banks before dawn Jan. 30, 2011, as he was checking out of a hotel. Officers then rescued the girl from a hotel room.
