ENID, Okla. — A 24-year-old Aline man pleaded guilty Tuesday to four counts of soliciting sexual conduct or communication with a minor by use of technology.

Devon Glen Montgomery entered a blind plea, meaning a judge will determine his sentence and there was no agreement with prosecutors to the felony charges, each of which is punishable by up to 10 years in prison or a fine of up to $10,000.

Montgomery was arrested last summer after posting an online ad seeking sex in the Enid or surrounding area, and specifying “any age don’t matter to me.”

Enid Police Department Sgt. Dustin Albright responded to the ad June 21, 2012, posing as a 13-year-old girl. He and Montgomery continued to correspond, with Montgomery believing the detective was a minor, on June 22, 26 and 27 last year, according to an affidavit filed in the case.

Montgomery discusses specific sexual acts and also arranged to meet at a hotel in Enid during one conversation, according to the affidavit.

Sgt. Tim Jacobi conducted a traffic stop about 9:40 a.m. June 27, 2012, on Montgomery’s vehicle. Police obtained a search warrant for the vehicle and found a box of condoms that were purchased from an Enid convenience store that morning.

During an interview with Albright, Montgomery admitted to being the one he was talking to, according to the affidavit. Montgomery also admitted to planning to come to Enid to pick up a 13-year-old girl and have sex with her.

District Judge Paul Woodward ordered a pre-sentencing investigation be conducted after accepting Montgomery’s plea. Formal sentencing was set for July 11. Montgomery remains free on $250,000 bond.
