BOULDER COUNTY, Colo. (CBS4)– A Colorado man has pleaded guilty to 11 felonies in relation to kidnapping a teenager from Connecticut.

Wind pleaded guilty to kidnapping, sexual assault on a child patter of abuse, enticement of a child, three counts of Internet sexual exploitation of a child, two counts of Internet luring of a child, sexual exploitation of a child relating to video among similar charges related to a second victim.

Prosecutors said Wind drove from Colorado to Connecticut in 2014 to meet the then 14-year-old. Wind was 53 at the time.

Wind met the girl through a Disney chat room called Pixie Hollow. He then took her on what prosecutors dubbed “a honeymoon,” stopping in New York, New Jersey and Kansas before returning to Longmont.

She was found in an apartment in Longmont more than two weeks after she went missing from her home in Connecticut.

Sentencing for Wind is scheduled for June when he faces life in prison.
