Canadian Who Took Kansas Girl Sentenced to 8 Years

KSAL StaffMay 8, 2013

A Canadian man will spend eight years in prison for taking a 12-year-old Kansas girl he met on the Internet.

Stewart Kenneth Cody McGill, of Bewdley, Ontario, was sentenced Wednesday on one count of traveling with intent to engage in illicit sexual conduct.

The 21-year-old man pleaded guilty in February under a plea deal that spared him a minimum 10-year sentence had he been convicted at trial.

His attorney, Roger Falk, cited his client’s “low mental capacity.” He said while there was a difference in chronological ages between him and the girl, their developmental ages were close.

He says nothing more happened between them than touching her over her jeans.

McGill traveled last year to El Dorado to meet the girl. They were found days later near Potterville, Mich.
