During the hearing, Judge Walter Rice described how Kirkwood was expecting to meet the girl, buy her panties and then have sex with her in his truck.
The judge also described in detail images of child pornography found on Kirkwood’s computers, including images of men having sex with young girls.
The plea agreement calls for Kirkwood to be sentenced to from 7 to 9 years in prison and surrender seven computer devices seized during the search of his home in Lebanon.
Investigators also found four pairs of young girl’s panties in a pocket of Kirkwood’s golf bag, according to an affidavit filed by Donald P. Moesle Jr., a special agent for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Immigration and Customs enforcement.
The child pornography charge and plea agreement were filed and the enticement and coercion case dropped on Dec. 6.
Rice accepted Kirkwood’s plea, but scheduled sentencing for April 5.
“It’s gonna be a lengthy one,” Rice said.
While delaying sentencing, Rice warned Kirkwood he faced up to more than 12 years in prison, as well as a lifetime of sex offender registration and reporting, and as much as $255,000 in fines.
If dissatisfied with the sentence, Rice said Kirkwood could withdraw his plea and “start all over again.”
