PRINCETON — A Virginia man faces up to 20 years in prison after pleading guilty today to charges of soliciting a minor by computer.

John Howard Reynolds, 39, of Honaker, Va., was arrested April 18 by the West Virginia State Police and later arraigned on charges including soliciting/enticement of a minor by computer and use of minors in filming sexually-explicit conduct. The case involved a 16-year-old girl, according to assistant prosecuting attorney Kelli Harshbarger.

The offense occurred on or about August 2012 in Mercer County, investigators said at the time of his arrest.
