Illinois man admits taking nude photos of boy on church lot

EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (AP) -- A southwestern Illinois man who prosecutors say took nude photos of a 12-year-old boy on an Alton church's parking lot has pleaded guilty to producing and possessing child porn.

Blake Young, 41, entered the plea Tuesday in federal court in East St. Louis.

Authorities say Young in March asked the boy he knew from the church to come into his motor home parked at the church. Prosecutors say Young then took pictures of the boy's genitals and showed the boy nude photos on his cell phone of a 15-year-old's genitals.

Police approached Young after the boy reported the matter, and the photos were found in Young's motor home.

At sentencing on Dec. 3 Young could face up to 30 years in prison for the production charge.
