JACKSON (August 14) — On Tuesday, after two days of trial, Nathan Adams, 36, pleaded guilty to production and attempted production of child pornography. D. Michael Dunavant, U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Tennessee announced the guilty plea.
The proof presented at trial showed Adams surreptitiously recorded videos of a 13-year-old minor female in various stages of undress, including fully nude. Adams filmed some of the videos from outside the minor’s home, filming through a hole in the window blinds. On other occasions, Adams hid the recording device inside the minor’s bedroom or bathroom.
Adams was reported to law enforcement after the minor’s mother discovered the recording device and the explicit videos of her daughter.
On the second day of trial, as the videos that Adams recorded were being played for the jury, Adams advised the Court that he wished to plead guilty to the charges against him.
Adams faces a mandatory minimum 15 years of imprisonment. Sentencing is set for November 20, 2018 before U.S. District Chief Judge S. Thomas Anderson.
