YouTube star held for child porn cases in US
A 24-year-old YouTube singer Austin Jones was arrested in Chicago for two cases of child pornography. He is currently being held in custody, according to Khaleej Times.

The media personality is accused of using social media to solicit sexually explicit videos from teens aged between 14-15. According to Billboard, he pressured victims to ‘prove’ that they were his biggest fans by sending racy videos to him.

According to the Chicago Sun Times, one of the victims sent Jones a total of 25 explicit videos - eight of which exposing her private parts. Another girl sent a total of 15 videos, 10 of which involved the victim exposing herself. Communication between Jones and the victims took place on social media platform Facebook, as well as on the messaging application, iMessage.

After his arrest, the YouTube singer admitted to soliciting and receiving the videos from the victims for his ‘pleasure’.
