A Morgantown man will spend the next 2 to ten years behind bars after he admitted to soliciting a minor.

Kannan Kesavan, 31, posted an ad on a social media site looking for a babysitter with benefits. He was talking to a 15-year-old and told her how much he would pay for different sex acts. Kesavan booked a hotel room and came to the Bridgeport Athletic Fields to meet the girl and that's where he was arrested.

Kesavan's attorney requested alternative sentencing Monday, including allowing his client to leave the country because he's a citizen of India.

Throw the key away too. These perverts are never rehabilitated and statistics prove this.
