WHEELING, W.Va – A Pennsylvania man faces up to 30 years in prison after pleading guilty to a federal charge of traveling across state lines to have sex with a minor.

U.S. Attorney William J. Ihlenfeld said Bazbaz started talking to a 15-year-old girl from Jefferson County, Ohio, through a social media website in December 2013. Bazbaz claimed to be 17 and eventually took the girl to a hotel room in Hancock County, West Virginia.
Bazbaz is a commercial airline pilot who was working for Republic Airways.
Bazbaz pleaded guilty to travel with intent to engage in illicit sexual conduct.
