BATAVIA, N.Y. (WIVB) - A 29-year-old Batavia man now admits he ran away with a 16-year-old girl and had sex with her.
The U.S. Attorney's Office says the girl went missing last September, and her parents contacted the Genesee County Sheriff's Office. When the FBI got involved, the teen's parents told agents their daughter might be with Timothy Michael Logsdon.
Authorities caught up to Logsdon and the girl in Bowling Green, Kentucky a few days later by using signals from his cellphone. He told authorities that he and the 16-year-old planned to travel to Tennessee and carry on a relationship.
Logsdon was arrested and charged with knowingly transporting a minor in interstate commerce with the intent to engage in sexual activity.
On Thursday, Logsdon pleaded guilty. When he is sentenced in August, he faces a maximum 10 years behind bars.
Police say they had the wrong man, and that Jerome Thagard, who spent four years in prison, didn't murder Steven Northrup in 2009. But the victim's family says otherwise.
