David Morris Pleads Guilty to Charges He Turned Phoenix Home into Kiddie-Porn Studio

A Phoenix man accused of using his west Phoenix home to shoot kiddie-porn films pleaded guilty today in Maricopa County Superior Court.

David Robert Morris was arrested in October and charged with 10 counts of sexual exploitation and seven counts of sexual conduct with a minor. Today, he pleaded guilty to two counts of sexual exploitation of a minor, one count of child molestation, and one count of sexual conduct with a minor.

Morris' victims were girls -- one a 3-year-old, the other a 5-year-old -- whom he videotaped as he molested them.

After he was done abusing the girls, he uploaded the videos to the Internet and sold them out of his home.

Morris shot the films at his house in Phoenix, which happens to be just a few blocks away from a church and Ironwood Elementary School.

At the time of his arrest, authorities warned that there could potentially be other victims.

Morris' sentencing is scheduled for July 15 in front of Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Connie Contes.
