GRAND FORKS, ND (WDAZ-TV) - A Minot man has pleaded guilty in Grand Forks County Court today to luring a minor by computer.
Michael Swanson, 38, of Minot, agreed to a plea deal of a ten year sentence with four years suspended.
Authorities say Swanson chatted online about sex with someone he believed was a 14-year-old girl but was actually a member of law enforcement.
According to court papers, they talked to each other online and through text messages for a couple weeks.
Then Swanson traveled to Grand Forks where he expected to meet the minor.
He is scheduled to be sentenced on November 30.
