A Kansas City man faced federal charges Wednesday that he distributed child pornography and tried to use the Internet to entice two underage girls for illegal sex.

Beginning in January, Daniel C. Irwin, 37, began an online relationship with an undercover Kansas City police detective who was posing as the father of two girls, one 16 and one 12, court records allege.

Irwin allegedly expressed interest in meeting the girls for sex and for seven months exchanged emails with the detective asking about those prospects.

Irwin also purportedly sent videos and photos of child porn to the detective, court records said.

Federal agents and Kansas City police served a search warrant on Irwin’s home on Aug. 8.
