A California man has pleaded guilty in Iowa to child sexual exploitation.
Prosecutors say 21-year-old David Vogelpohl, of Vista, California, entered the plea Thursday in U.S. District Court in Cedar Rapids.
He admitted that he persuaded a girl under 18 to engage in sexually explicit conduct last year for the purpose of producing visual depictions.
Prosecutors say he faces a mandatory minimum of 15 years in prison and a maximum of 30 years.
Vogelpohl's sentencing hearing hasn't been scheduled.
