Miami (AP) -- An Ohio man has pleaded guilty in Miami to charges that he planned to submerge two young girls in water until they became unconscious for his own sexual pleasure.
Jeff Doland's guilty plea Wednesday interrupted his trial that began Monday.
The Uniontown, Ohio, man agreed to a 20-year prison sentence, plus 10 years probation. He had faced up to 90 years if convicted by a jury.
Doland was arrested in 2007 as part of a cybersex sting.
Authorities said he flew to Miami to meet a mother who would let him "dunk" her daughters. A U.S. Secret Service was posing as the fictional mother in an internet chat room.
Defense attorney Terrence O'Sullivan says his 47-year-old client "started to realize the evidence against him was overwhelming."
