   EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (AP) - A southwestern Illinois man faces up to 15 years in federal prison now that he's admitted to paying undercover investigators $1,500 in hopes of having sex with a seven year old girl.

   The Belleville News-Democrat reports that 65 year old David Driskill of Carrollton has pleaded guilty in East St. Louis to commercial sex trafficking. Sentencing is scheduled for Oct. 7.

   Authorities say Driskill sent text messages in May to a woman, offering to pay $3,000 if she could arrange for to have sex with a child between 7 and 11 years old. The woman instead notified authorities and cooperated with them.

   Driskill was arrested days later at a Jerseyville apartment after paying an undercover federal investigator $1,500 for the supposed sexual encounter with a girl.

A small town police chief is now unemployed, and he says it's because he criticized the Montgomery County prosecutor's handling of a burglar investigation. Mike Bland was fired from his post with the Bellflower, Missouri Police Department.

Bland's firing notice indicates that he was terminated for failing to get permission from city officials prior to an interview with Fox 2 News.

Bland told Fox 2 he had permission from the Mayor of Bellflower and he has the phone records to prove it. "There was numerous calls made between her and I about this exact case," Bland said. "And not only that, witnesses to the phone call itself."

Bland had criticized county prosecutors for failing to charge three burglary suspects who had confessed to the crimes.

In a statement Montgomery County’s Prosecuting Attorney said there had not been sufficient documentation to file criminal charges.
