Plea change in federal child porn case

Beauchamp and Ashby both reach plea deals for recording 16-year-old boy

Rock Island, Illinois - One of two men facing federal charges for producing and distributing sexual content involving a minor was back in court Friday to change his plea.

Aaron Beauchamp, 39, of Matherville, Illinois will plead guilty to Possession of Visual Depiction of a Minor Engaged in Sexually Explicit Content. 

The judge will make a final ruling on accepting the plea at his sentencing in June.

Prosecutors said Beauchamp and William Ashby recorded a 16-year-old boy who was passed out in sexually explicit positions and one video included bestiality.

Those videos were later posted on social media.

As part of a deal, Beauchamp will face 64 months in prison, or a little more than five years.

Ashby also made a plea earlier this week.
