CNN - With his swooping blonde hair, bright blue eyes and versatile voice, Austin Jones piled up millions of views with his a capella covers of songs by Justin Bieber, Fall Out Boy and others. Followers -- mainly teenage girls -- adored his slickly produced videos, and as the likes and subscribers poured in, he began to perform on tour across the country. But on Friday, a year and a half since the last time he posted to his , YouTube subscribers, Jones appeared before a federal court in the Northern District of Illinois and pleaded guilty to receipt of child pornography. The year-old from suburban Chicago had been using his online popularity to solicit sexually explicit videos from girls as young as 14, a plea agreement states. Jones was charged in June with two counts of production of child pornography and, according to a plea agreement , admitted to enticing six underage girls to make pornographic videos of themselves and to send them to him. He now faces a mandatory minimum of five years in prison and a maximum of 20 years, prosecutors said. His sentencing is set for May 3.
The growing reality for social networks is that they will perpetually be exploited in new and terrorizing ways and there may not be a sweeping solution for bad actors. The hope is that solutions outpace abusers. The alleged shooter is now in custody, at least 50 people are dead, and many others are hospitalized with injuries. But another key facet of the massacre was spreading a hate-filled page manifesto and first-person footage of the shootings that was captured on a body cam worn by the perpetrator.
While YouTube was quick to react to the onslaught, for the next couple of days users may come across thumbnails of videos, which are not active, and yet remain in the search cache. YouTube began taking down the videos immediately after midnight on Wednesday, when the onslaught began. Early posters were using readily identifiable tags, which helped YouTube remove the videos early on. Videos would appear with 20 to 30 seconds of an innocuous clip, such as news footage from a local TV station, only to then begin with the pornography section.
