GRAND RAPIDS (WKZO) -- John Balyo has cut a deal with federal prosecutors.
The former Christian broadcaster will plead guilty to exploitation of a minor and possession of child pornography rather than risk going to trial and facing an unsympathetic jury.
He is charged with video taping a 12-year-old boy in Kalamazoo County committing a sex act.
In exchange for the plea the U.S. Attorneys won’t pursue other possible charges.
A Federal Judge will consider the plea bargain next Tuesday.
Balyo still faces trial for first degree criminal sexual conduct for an alleged illegal sex act with a male minor in Battle Creek.
