Man Pleads Guilty in Child Porn Sweep

KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) A Kansas, City, Kan., man arrested as part of an international child pornography crackdown admitted that he traveled from Kansas to Missouri to have sex with a minor.

The Kansas City Star reports Robert Poe III entered his plea Tuesday in federal court.

Poe was charged in August with three counts of traveling to entice a minor to engage in sex. He was accused of using a gun to force two boys to perform oral sex on him. Poe, on Tuesday, denied using a gun but said prosecutors had enough evidence to convict him.

Poe was arrested during a Homeland Security investigation that led to dozens of arrests.

He is a friend of Michael D. Arnett, 38, of Roeland Park, who pleaded guilty last week to making child pornography.
