GLOBAL ONE NEWS (G1) — YouTube sensation Austin Jones is facing mandatory jail time of 5 to 20 years after pleading guilty to child pornography charges Feb. 1.
CNN reported the plea agreement says Jones admitted to enticing six minor girls to send him pornographic videos — some as young as 14.
With his boyish good looks and a cappella music covers of stars like Justin Bieber and Fall Out Boys, Jones garnered millions of views that helped him lure in young fans.
In one incident Jones told a teen that she “needed to prove that she was his biggest fan” by sending sexually-explicit videos.
The accusations led to his arrest in 2017, but the 26-year-old remains free on a $100,000 secured bond until his sentencing May 3.
YouTube meanwhile has not removed his page.
