ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) - A Georgia man has pleaded guilty to prostituting numerous underage girls in Virginia, Maryland and through several southern states.

Twenty-one-year-old Joshua Dumas of Atlanta entered the plea Monday in federal court in Virginia. He faces a mandatory minimum of 20 years in prison at sentencing June 7.
