Troopers: Man videotaped sexual acts with a minor

CALIFORNIA, Mo. - A Mid-Missouri man is facing multiple charges for sex with a minor.

The Moniteau County prosecuting attorney filed eight charges against 37-year-old John C. Smith for allegedly engaging in sexual acts with a minor.

Smith was charged with sexual exploitation of a minor, two counts of second-degree statutory sodomy, use of a child in sexual performance, possession of child pornography, incest, and endangering the welfare of a child.

Court documents show the incidents happened between July and December of 2012 and authorities say some of the sexual acts were videotaped.

Smith is being held in jail without bond.
