EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU)-- A Chippewa Falls man charged in a sex trafficking sting in Eau Claire County has pleaded guilty.

38-year-old Mark Potts made the plea to one count of attempted child enticement. Two other charges were dismissed but read in Tuesday.

Back in September, undercover officers placed ads on Craigslist, either posing as a teen looking for sex or as an adult willing to traffic or sell a child for sex. The officers then met and arrested five area men, including Potts.
