A Magazine man who was originally charged with pandering or possessing visual or print medium depicting sexually explicit conduct involving a child reached a plea agreement to a lesser chage in the case in Paris on Feb. 8.
Keith Runyon, 20, agreed to plead guilty to an amended charge of tampering with physical evidence and was sentenced to 36 months probation for the Class D felony. He was also assessed court costs, a $1,000 fine and ordered to pay a DNA fee.
Runyon was also ordered to have no contact with a minor victim in the case, or her family, and to have no contact with any youth sports program.
According to an arrest warrant affidavit in the case, Runyon knew the victim from who a nude photograph was solicited from to be 13 years old because he had been a referee for her basketball games.
The affidavit states the image delivered to Runyon had not been viewable because of lighting issues and alleged he had an ongoing conversation about obtaining a subsequent photo.
