WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - A former Bank of America executive will spend at least 10 years in federal prison after pleading guilty to trying to arrange a sexual encounter with a 13-year-old girl.

59-year-old Kirk A. Simmons entered the guilty plea at a court hearing Tuesday. He faces a maximum sentence of life in prison when he is sentenced on June 24.

In return for the guilty plea, prosecutors agreed to dismiss a charge of attempted production of child pornography.

Simmons was arrested in July 2013 outside a Newark hotel where he had arranged with an undercover detective to have sex with the fictitious girl.

He was subsequently fired from his job as a Bank of America vice president.
