An American man has pleaded guilty in a US court for producing child pornography by paying women in the Philippines to sexually abuse children.

Dwayne Stinson, 53, paid women in the Philippines to sexually abuse children online, the Department of Justice of the US said in a statement on Monday.

Stinson admitted that he communicated with women in the Philippines between October 2011 and February 2012. He admitted that he instructed a Filipino woman to engage in sexual acts with her six-year-old son.

Stinson then took screenshots of the abuse and stored them in his computer. According to Washington’s Top News, in March 2012, the Prince William County police searched Stinson’s home and found hard drives containing screenshots of the abuse.

He was arrested in July 2017 and indicted on five counts of producing child pornography in September 2017. Joshua Steve, a spokesman for the United States Attorney’s Office in the Eastern District of Virginia, said he could not publicly share the details on the timeline leading to Stinson’s arrest.

On August 24, he will face a sentence of 15 to 30 years in jail, according to US law.
