Cumberland Man Admits Producing Child Pornography

BALTIMORE (AP) — A 72-year-old Cumberland man has pleaded guilty to sexually exploiting a minor to produce child pornography.

John Widdows entered the plea late Thursday in federal court in Baltimore.

He admitted that he made three videos of himself molesting the victim, starting in 2005 when she was 9 years old. Authorities also found other images of child pornography in his possession.

Widdows faces a minimum mandatory sentence of 15 years in prison and a maximum of 30 years. Sentencing is scheduled for Sept. 8.

    Put him in the slammer, that’s it, let him die a lonely old man in prison. Anyone who steals a child’s innocence, God has a special place & punishment for them for all eternity.

    I can not imagine he just started molesting in his 60’s I would bet he’s been doing this a long time.

    one hand you have child molesters/rapist and on the other hand you have a legal system that want to vote and pass a bill on same sex marriages because of their human rights. now who is going to form a bill to protect the molested children rights.
    Jehovah god is about to end this evil system of all things. good, i am so… glad that all evil people that honor and worship Satan the devil will soon be wiped off the face of this earth and will never ever be no more by the almighty hands of god !
    yes, Jesus Christ is coming real soon. look around at all of the world events according to the biblical prophecies that we are all now witnessing.
