The U.S. Attorney’s office says 55-year-old Anthony Shultz pleaded guilty Wednesday, July 18. Sentencing is scheduled for December 6, 2018.

Prosecutors say Shultz, a helicopter pilot from Lindsborg, also admitted he videotaped sex acts with a 12-year-old and a 15-year-old and brought the videos back to Kansas.

In one of the videos, Shultz is seen giving the 15-year-old money after having sex with her.

Prosecutors say Schultz also produced child pornography using an 8-year-old Philippine girl over Skype with the cooperation of the girl’s mother.

Shultz was charged in July 2016 and pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge Eric F. Melgren of the District of Kansas.

The FBI investigated the case. Trial Attorney Lauren E. Britsch of the Criminal Division’s Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section (CEOS) and Assistant U.S. Attorney Jason Hart of the District of Kansas prosecuted the case.

This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice.
