CORPUS CHRISTI, TEXAS - A South Texas man who advertised online as a babysitter faces up to 50 years in prison for molesting a girl in his care and recording the abuse.
Daniel Benson Billman of Aransas Pass pleaded guilty Monday to production of child pornography.
Federal prosecutors in Corpus Christi say the 42-year-old Billman last summer was linked to the possible sexual assault of a child.
Prosecutors say Billman posted an ad on Craig's List as a babysitter for hire. A woman answered the ad and placed her daughter in the care of Billman and his girlfriend.
Billman, in his plea deal, acknowledged molesting the 7-year-old girl in a hotel and in a vehicle.
Billman, who was arrested in October, remains in custody pending sentencing.
