His 2013 flight to Rapid City, S.D., with a then-13-year-old girl, will get 33-year-old Joshua D. Baker a December sentencing in federal court, following his guilty plea today.
Baker, of Leeper in Clarion County, pleaded guilty to interstate transportation of a minor for illicit sex. U.S. District Judge Cathy Bissoon set sentencing for Dec. 2.
Clarion police, FBI in Pittsburgh and South Dakota, and police in the Rapid City area collaborated on locating and arresting Mr. Baker, according to U.S. Attorney David Hickton's office.
