Pennsylvania men charged for raping 6-year-old boy at the same time on video
William Byers Augusta, 20, arranged to meet with an HIV-positive man named Ira Tusk to sexually assault a child while videotaping the crime.
A 20-year-old Pennsylvania man pleaded guilty on Tuesday of raping a 6-year-old boy after prosecutors said that he had filmed 11 different videos of himself raping the child.
William Byers Augusta live-streamed at least one of the videos of the rapes, and at one point arranged to meet with an HIV-positive man named Ira Tusk to sexually assault the child.
Cumberland County Senior Assistant District Attorney Nathan Boob described the crimes in detail during the hearing, noting that Canadian authorities had intercepted the broadcast of one of the rapes and had alerted the proper authorities to go after Augusta.
In one video, Augusta could be seen kicking the boy in the stomach, hitting him in the face, choking him and forcing him to perform oral sex. In another video, the boy had his hands tied behind his back while naked as he was forced to perform oral sex.
Augusta pleaded guilty to a list of charges that included aggravated indecent assault of a child, aggravated assault, possession of child pornography and criminal conspiracy to commit rape of a child. Both Tusk and Augusta face additional charges in a pending federal case related to the rapes.
