Aucklander Troy George Skinner admitted one charge of producing child pornography.

A New Zealand man who was shot while allegedly trying to kidnap a 14-year-old girl in the US state of Virginia, has reached a plea agreement with prosecutors.

Aucklander Troy George Skinner, 28, pleaded guilty to one charge of producing child pornography.

Skinner was arrested in June 2018 after he showed up at the home of the girl, whom he had met on-line, and allegedly tried to break in.

A New Zealand man who travelled to Virginia in the United States and allegedly tried to break into the home of a 14-year-old girl he met online has appeared in court to face federal charges (first published on October 30).

“Mr Skinner’s solicitation of this minor victim is unfortunately not uncommon for sexual predators; what is rather unusual is for a predator to travel this extensively to gain access to their victim. Had it not been for the intervention of an adult, this incident could have been much worse,” he said in a statement.

Sentencing for Skinner is set for next February.
