A 24-year-old San Diego man pleaded guilty Friday in federal court to selling the banned drug Ecstasy to a young woman, resulting in her death.

Marvin Bada faces a minimum of 20 years in prison when he is sentenced in March.

Bada admitted selling Ecstasy in April 2009 to Laura Luna, 21, who lived in the Rancho Bernardo area of San Diego. She died of an overdose two weeks later, according to the San Diego County medical examiner.
