Former Bank VP Pleads Guilty to Attempting Sexual Encounter With Juvenile

Posted:

WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - A former Bank of America vice president has been sentenced to 10 years in federal prison after pleading guilty to trying to arrange a sexual encounter with a 13-year-old girl.

Sixty-year-old Kirk A. Simmons was given the minimum mandatory sentence of 10 years Tuesday. He faced a maximum of life in prison.

Simmons pleaded guilty in February to attempted enticement and coercion of a minor, and prosecutors agreed to dismiss a charge of attempted production of child pornography. According to court records, Simmons intended to photograph his encounter with the girl.

Simmons was arrested in July 2013 outside a Newark hotel where he had arranged with an undercover state police detective assigned to Delaware's Child Predator Task Force to have sex with the fictitious girl.
