A Pennsylvania man has pleaded guilty in a depraved case of child sexual assault. William Byers Augusta, 20, repeatedly raped and sodomized a 6-year-old boy over an extended period. In addition to raping the small child, he videotaped his encounters and shared them with other pedophiles. According to police, there is a video showing Augusta kicking the boy in the stomach, hitting him in the face, choking him and making him perform oral sex.
Cumberland County Senior Assistant District Attorney Nathan Boob described Augusta’s in graphic detail. He told media Augusta forced the boy to perform oral sex while naked with his hands tied behind his back. His laptop and other devices also contained 50 child porn images. Augusta invited another pedophile, an HIV-positive man named Ira Task, 62, to come over and have sex with the boy also. There is a video of Task having unprotected anal sex with the boy as Augusta filmed it for a Skype session. Task was sentenced in June to a sentence of 17 ½ to 40 years. He pleaded guilty to rape of a child, conspiracy to commit rape of a child and other charges.
Augusta pleaded guilty this past Tuesday to 11 counts of raping a child, aggravated indecent assault of a child, aggravated assault, possession of child pornography and criminal conspiracy to commit rape of a child. The pair is also facing federal charges because Canadian law enforcement intercepted data being sent to Canada.
