North Carolina student admits soliciting sex

A 19-year-old college student from North Carolina has admitted he used the Internet in an attempt to solicit sex from an undercover Louisiana state trooper posing as a 15-year-old girl.

Hugh James Passerini Jr., who was initially charged with online solicitation of a minor and indecent
behavior with a juvenile, pleaded guilty to indecent behavior with a juvenile.

A state judge gave Passerini a suspended five-year prison term, put him on active supervised probation for five years and ordered him to register as a sex offender.

Prosecutors say Passerini, an engineering student at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, entered an Internet chat room last July and communicated with a person he thought was a
15-year-old girl.
