Former youth coach pleads guilty to child porn charges

BOONE COUNTY, Ky. (WKRC) -- A long-time youth coach in Boone County admits he created multiple sexually explicit videos of children.

46-year-old Michael Schweitzer pleaded guilty in federal court Tuesday to producing and possessing child pornography.

In November 2012, Schweitzer gave drugs to a minor and then recorded himself sexually exploiting the child. Authorities discovered even more videos on Schweitzer's cell phone during their investigation.

As part of his plea deal Schweitzer has agreed to a 35 year prison sentence. A judge will sentence him July 1.

In a separate case, Schweitzer faces charges in Boone County. He's accused of sexually abusing six boys from May of 2011 through June of 2013. He has pleaded not guilty in that case.
