Huntington - A former Marshall University football player pleaded guilty Monday to distribution of child pornography.

Jeremiah Taylor, 32, of Huntington, admitted he used the mobile messaging application Kik to send several graphic videos of child pornography to an undercover Federal Bureau of Investigation agent in January 2019 

These videos depicted nude prepubescent children engaged in sexual conduct, including sadistic or masochistic conduct. Taylor also admitted that he asked the undercover agent for photos of the agent’s 9-year-old daughter naked in sexually-explicit poses.

On Kik, Taylor was an active member of a group focused on taboo interests, wherein users frequently shared images and videos of child pornography. Taylor’s Kik username was “58ThatDude58” – 58 is the number Taylor wore while playing football for Marshall from 2010 to 2013.

He faces at least five years and up to 20 years in prison when sentenced on September 28 before U.S. District Judge Robert C. "Chuck" Chambers.
