OLATHE, Kan. (CBS St. Louis) — A Kansas man is accused of putting a naked 2-year-old boy in a roasting pan and placing him inside an oven.
KCTV reports that 38-year-old Michael D. Arnett pleaded guilty to producing child pornography. Arnett also took provocative pictures of two other boys, aged 11 and 8.
Arnett reportedly met the three boys while driving for Kaw Valley Health Systems, a nonprofit organization that helps to provide social services for children.
Homeland Security Investigation’s Operation Hotline officials had assistance from teachers at the elementary school in Shawnee Mission to help identify the three boys.
Arnett admitted in his plea to possessing the child pornography on his computer. One of the images he had was of a naked 2-year-old lying in a roasting pan inside an oven.
Arnett faces up to 30 years in jail and a $250,000 fine.
