Man Admits to Filming Sex with Child, Sentenced to 6 Years

Posted by wlpo on October 1, 2016

An Ottawa man who allegedly filmed himself having sex with an underage girl is headed to prison.

Judge H. Chris Ryan sentenced 27-year old Antuwan Bell to 6 years in prison after hearing his guilty plea in court Friday. In exchange for his plea, prosecutors agreed to ask for the minimum possible sentence. Bell was facing between 6 and 30 years for the Class X Felony.

Ottawa Police had arrested Bell after they say they were made aware of a video back in April that showed Bell engaging in a sexual act with a child.

Bell was given credit for the time he had already served and, because of the sentence, could be eligible for parole in 2019.
