18-year-old pleads guilty to secretly recording sex videos

Jeremiah Horton pleads guilty

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Jeremiah Horton appeared in court Friday to plead guilty after he secretly shared recorded sex videos with a minor.

Police say the 18-year-old recorded a video showing him and a 14-year-old girl engaging in sexual activity and then sent it out to fellow students at North College Hill High School. The girl was not aware she was recorded, police said.

Horton was charged with two counts of pandering sexually oriented matter involving a minor.

The state dropped the second count. The other has been reduced to an attempt which is 3rd degree felony.

In addition, Horton would be required to register as a Tier 2 sex offender for 25 years.

As part of the plea agreement, he would also be required to go to the River City Correctional Center for six months.

The state is also requesting a probation period following his time in the program.

A judge will make the final decision on Horton’s fate when he is sentenced on May 23.

If the judge orders Horton to prison, he could serve anywhere from nine to 36 months and be required to be on post-release control for up to three years.
