Emerado man accused of luring minor

FARGO, N.D. (AP) — An Emerado man has entered an Alford plea to a felony charge of luring a minor over a computer.

FARGO, N.D. (AP) — An Emerado man has entered an Alford plea to a felony charge of luring a minor over a computer.

The Forum reports (http://bit.ly/JD7YH9 ) that 23-year-old Steven Arthur Pfeiff entered the plea Monday. An Alford plea means a defendant doesn't admit guilt but acknowledges there's enough evidence for conviction.

Court records say Pfeiff had several online chats with a 12-year-old girl who exposed her nude body via a webcam. Court records also indicate Pfeiff exposed himself to the girl.

The case was brought to the attention of the police in August by a parent who discovered Internet chats with her daughter. Police arrested Pfeiff in October after he traveled about 90 miles from Emerado to Fargo thinking he was meeting the girl.
