COVINGTON - A Louisiana prosecutor says a 24-year-old man has pleaded guilty to sexual battery of a 4-year-old girl and 277 pornography counts.
District Attorney Warren Montgomery says William Harvey Watson of Slidell was sentenced Monday to 30 years on the battery charge and 25 years concurrently on each pornography charge.
A news release Thursday says Watson admitted touching the girl sexually and posing her for pornography.
He says Watson was asked to briefly babysit the child in February. When her mother returned, Watson had locked the door and took minutes to answer it. The girl's clothes were disheveled and inside-out, and the child told her mother what had happened.
Montgomery says Watson pleaded guilty to 250 counts of possessing child pornography and 27 of producing pornography of a child under age 13.
