A man involved in a group sex and alcohol event involving two teenage girls last year pleaded guilty to six felony charges Tuesday.
Kevin Neal Golightly, 35, of Spotsylvania was convicted of two counts each of carnal knowledge with a minor, producing child pornography and possessing child pornography.
Golightly had been charged with 42 offenses and had a three-day jury trial scheduled for next month.
Three other Spotsylvania men—Justin Terry, 20, his father Adam Terry, 43, and Cesar Lopez-Canales, 24—were convicted of related charges Friday.
According to the evidence presented by prosecutors Crystal Montague-Holland and Matt Lowery, the incident took place June 21 at the Terry residence on Hamway Drive in the Millgarden subdivision.
Justin Terry picked up the teens, ages 15 and 14, and took them out for ice cream before taking them to his home.
The teens were given alcohol, according to court records, before engaging in stripteases and a variety of sex acts with the men.
Court documents describe the sex acts while the men cheered them on.
The evidence showed that Golightly took numerous pictures with his smartphone, along with engaging in some of the acts.
Police recovered the photographs, which were a key part of the evidence against the four defendants.
Detective Pattye Harper began her investigation five days after the incident when the older girl reported being raped.
The girl told police she was taken advantage of after the men got her intoxicated.
Golightly and both Terrys will be sentenced on April 25, while Lopez-Canales will be sentenced May 9.
