57 year-old Gene Edward Alden pled guilty yesterday to a number of charges, including attempted sexual battery on a child under the age of 12 and 10-counts of promoting a sexual performance by a child.
Alden's activities came to light in September after a 4-year old child told authorities he inappropriately touched them.
Then Alden admitted he paid teenage girls to pose nude for photographs, even offering to pay one of the girls for sex.
Immediately after his plea, Judge Kelvin Wells sentenced Alden to 25 years in prison, 15-years probation and designated him a sexual predator.
