A Union City man who pleaded guilty to child porn charges will now spend several decades in federal prison.

On Tuesday in Grand Rapids Federal Court, 30-year-old Erin Mal Killey was sentenced to 30 years in prison on charges of production, distribution and possession of child pornography. The US Attorney’s Office for West Michigan says in a release that while Killey was supposed to be babysitting a 7-year-old girl, he instead took explicit photographs of the child, and emailed them to someone else, along with other child porn images.

As well, he admitted to molesting the girl.  

However, that person he emailed the images to turned out to be an undercover agent, leading to his arrest. After his prison term, Killey will face 10 years supervised release and registry as a sex offender.
