DOVER, Del. — A former Dover Air Force Base airman is facing a potential life sentence after pleading guilty to sex trafficking of a child.

Twenty-five-year-old Dalian Washington of Philadelphia faces at least 10 years behind bars after entering the plea Wednesday.

Prosecutors agreed to drop charges of sex abuse of a minor and conspiracy to commit child sex trafficking.

Another airman, 21-year-old Akeem Beazer of Pompano Beach, Florida, pleaded guilty to sex abuse of a minor and faces up to 15 years in prison.

Both men will be sentenced in January.

The two were arrested after the girl told a social worker she had stayed on the military base and had sex with service members.

Court records indicate that the girl had a troubled home life and often lived on the street.
