A New York man who once worked as a youth pastor has pleaded guilty to a child pornography charge, WIVB reported.
Nathan Rogers, 39, was accused of a 2019 incident where he set up cameras in his camper to secretly record a minor changing her clothes.
“Shortly after setting up the phones, Rogers invited the minor victim to change out of her bathing suit in his camper,” the U.S. Attorney’s office said. “She agreed and, as she changed, the iPhones recorded nude images.”
Federal prosecutors say the girl noticed she was being recorded, seized the phones and tried to delete the videos before reporting what happened to authorities.
Rogers was detained by responding law enforcement officers. He has since pleaded guilty to attempted receipt of child pornography.
Rogers faces up to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
