A New Orleans man admitted he used an interstate facility to promote prostitution.

David Michael White Jr., 33, went by the alias, "Prince Loyalty." According to federal court documents, White used the internet website Backpage to market women for prostitution.

The Department of Justice says White approached a then-19-year-old Shreveport woman at a bus stop to engage in prostitution in August 2015. White also advertised a 19-year-old New Orleans woman on Backpage in January 2013. Prosecutors say he collected money from both victims through his Backpage promotions. 

For each count, White faces up to five years in prison and/or a fine of up to $250,000. A judge will also decide if White could get up to three years of supervised release following the sentence, plus a mandatory special assessment of $200. 

Sentencing is scheduled for Feb. 16, 2017.
