By Jane Beathard
A West Jefferson man pleaded guilty in Madison County Common Pleas Court on Tuesday to taking and possessing nude pictures of underage girls.
Corey A. Wilson, 21, admitted taking the pictures on Feb. 13 and possessing them on May 10. Additional sex-related charges were dismissed by assistant county prosecutor Eamon Costello.
Wilson now faces up to nine years in prison, $17,500 in fines and classification as a Tier 2 sex offender for the convictions. He is also eligible for community control, pending the outcome of a pre-sentence investigation.
Judge Robert D. Nichols set Wilson’s sentencing for Jan. 24.
