WHITE RIVER JCT., Vt. (WCAX) - A former CNN producer facing child sex abuse charges is seeking a plea deal.

John Griffin, 45, formerly of Stamford, Connecticut, is accused of luring a mother and her 9-year-old daughter from Nevada to Ludlow, Vt., where he allegedly assaulted the child at his ski home. Prosecutors say Griffin also tried to convince other families online to travel to Vermont with their daughters, but that he was unsuccessful.

Griffin’s lawyer in a court filing Monday asked a judge to hold off on any motion deadlines to allow for the plea negotiations to continue. He also says Griffin will get credit for time served, for whatever sentence he is given.

A change of plea hearing is set for November 28th.
