Guilty plea in child porn case
A Pennsylvania man has pled guilty to producing child pornography charges involving a 13-year-old New Westminster girl.
Her parents contacted New Westminster police in October 2013 saying inappropriate images of their daughter were being sent over the Internet by an unknown American.
After an initial investigation the NWPD turned the case over to the FBI.
A Scranton, Penn., federal grand jury in March indicted Taylor Bzdyr, 20, of Clarks Summit, Penn.
According to an FBI press release, United States attorney Peter Smith said Bzdyr admitted to using a computer and a cellphone to persuade the New West girl to engage in sexual acts over the Internet via Skype.
The release said Bzdyr pled guilty Monday. He faces a mandatory minimum prison sentence of 15 years and a possible maximum of 30 years. Bzdyr is scheduled to be sentenced in U.S. District Court on Oct. 2.
