Christopher M. Bour, 40, pleaded guilty in January, without a plea agreement, to paying Natisha Hillard a total of $500 to have sex with a 4-month-old infant girl, an arrangement that lasted until the child was 18 months old, the Post-Tribune is reporting.
Bour pleaded guilty to buying a child for sex, possessing child pornography and three counts of producing child pornography.
Hillard, whom Bour met in 2011 through a dating service, also pleaded guilty in the case and is awaiting sentencing.
Hillard has admitted to being in the room with Bour and the baby on all but the last meeting, when he paid her extra to be alone with the baby.
He also took sexual images of the child’s older sister, who was about 3 years old at the time, and had child pornography images of other children that he did not produce, according to the government.
The judge said Bour showed no remorse for his crime and bragged about having sex with babies in text conversations with an acquaintance.
Bour’s attorney, Matthew Soliday, sought to have his client receive the mandatory minimum of 30 years in prison, arguing that Bour had never been arrested previously and had given information to police to help them identify Hillard, who could be seen in some of the videos.
