An Overland Park woman admitted Monday that she took a 13-year-old girl across state lines to have sex with a man, federal prosecutors said.
Tricia Rodarmel, 39, pleaded guilty in federal court to transporting a minor across state lines to engage in sexual activity.
In October 2013, Rodarmel began a relationship with Robert Dickson through social media, prosecutors said. Dickson told Rodarmel that he was interested in having sex with minors. On March 16, 2014, Rodarmel took the girl from Missouri to a hotel in Kansas to meet with Dickson.
Rodarmel is to be sentenced July 25. Prosecutors and her defense lawyer have agreed to recommend she serve 17 years in federal prison followed by 10 years of supervised release, according to a plea agreement.

Dickson, who pleaded guilty to producing child pornography, faces 25 years in prison under a similar plea agreement. He admitted traveling from South Carolina to Kansas, where he had sex with the child while recording it.
