A Kelowna man has pleaded guilty to using a computer to three charges of contacting underage girls with intent to commit an offence.

Eric Raymond Morneau, 33, entered guilty pleas yesterday. Charges of invitation to sexual touching were dropped. The victims were as young as 14.

The court has ordered a pre-sentence report and he will return Aug. 27, 2009.

Morneau was charged in February, 2009, after a Kelowna mother noticed open chat messages with Morneau. He allegedly had dozens of young children listed as friends on his account and told some of them he was 22 years old.
