SALT LAKE CITY -- A former Air Force major has pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge for using the Internet to arrange sex with a 14-year-old Utah girl.
Reinaldo L. Canton entered the plea to the enticement of a minor charge in Salt Lake City's 3rd District Court.
In a deal with prosecutors, two other counts were dropped.
The 47-year-old New Mexico man faces a one-year jail term and fines when sentenced on Aug. 22.
Canton, who suffers from a heart condition, was originally charged in federal court with an Internet sex crime in 2007. The case was dropped in 2009 after Canton suffered chest pains and a defense attorney said the stress of prosecution could kill him.
The Utah Attorney General's Office refiled the case later that year.
