Prosecutors said Legault also pleaded guilty to asking an 8-year-old girl in Mississippi to “engage in sexually explicit behavior” while they were chatting over a live stream.
“Predators use the internet and social media sites to lure unsuspecting teens into their web of deceit,” Pak said in a statement. “Fortunately, our law enforcement partners adapt quickly to new methods these individuals use, and catch those who prowl the Internet to engage in sexual activity with minors.”
After his release from prison, Legault will be deported back to Canada, officials said.
