Bourbon man pleads guilty in porn case

A Bourbon County man accepted a plea agreement from prosecutors Wednesday in federal court and pleaded guilty to producing child pornography.

Before entering his plea Wednesday afternoon, Daniel Kirk II, 27, admitted to using a 3-year-old boy to produce pornography.

Kirk was indicted by a federal grand jury in November on possession of child pornography charges, and was later charged with an additional count of producing child pornography.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Erin May said she will recommend during sentencing that the possession charge be dismissed.

Kirk will be sentenced on Oct. 2. He faces a maximum sentence of 30 years in prison and a minimum of 15 years.
