Mattawan man to be sentenced for child porn story image

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A Mattawan man convicted of several charges for his role in a child porn network will learn his punishment Friday.

39-year-old James Beckman Junior was found guilty in March on 10-counts of attempted sexual exploitation of a child.

He was also convicted of attempting to coerce and entice a child to commit a sex act, and sending and receiving child pornography.

Prosecutors say Beckman sexually abused and exploited two children, trying to get them to engage in sexual acts to be broadcast on the internet.

Beckman faces up to life in prison.
