LOS ANGELES, Dec 18 – A man accused of raping his daughter and posting the film on the Internet before later fleeing to China pleaded guilty at hearings in the western US state of Washington, justice officials said.
Kenneth Freeman, a former policeman and bodybuilder, admitted counts of producing child pornography and transportation of a minor across state lines for sex at a Federal Court hearing in Spokane.
He later pleaded guilty to three counts of first-degree rape at a state court hearing on Wednesday.
Freeman, 46, was extradited back to the United States from Hong Kong in September 2007 after more than a year on the run which saw him becoming one of America’s most wanted fugitives.
The former reserve sheriff’s deputy faces life in prison at a sentencing hearing on March 25.
His daughter, now a teenager, went public about her ordeal on the hit TV crime show "America’s Most Wanted."
The girl said she was abused in 2000 when she was 10 but she only revealed the abuse to her mother five years later. Freeman fled the United States for Asia in 2006. He was arrested in May 2007 after flying to Hong Kong from China.
