Former PTA president pleads guilty to child-porn charges

TACOMA, Wash. -- A former elementary-school PTA president pleaded guilty to the production, distribution and possession of child pornography Thursday in U.S. District Court, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office.

According to the charges, 38-year-old Belfair resident David Navarro made numerous videos of himself having sex with at least two children -- in addition to at least one video of him engaging in sexual activities while seated next to a child on an airplane -- and shared those videos online.

Navarro was arrested last August after an online video depicting the rape of an 8-year-old girl at Belfair Elementary School was traced back to him, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office.

Both the prosecution and defense are recommending Navarro be sentenced to 20 to 25 years in prison. But, the judge can still sentence him to the maximum 30 years.

Navarro is scheduled to be sentenced in July for two counts of production of child pornography, one count of distribution of child pornography and one count of possession of child pornography.
