A 21-year-old man who spliced together a video that made it look as if he were singing sexually oriented lyrics to first-graders has been sentenced to 60 days in jail.
Muskegon County Circuit Judge William Marietti sentenced Evan Emory of Fruitport on Tuesday. The judge also gave Emory two years' probation and ordered him to perform 200 hours of community service.
The sentence came after Emory pleaded guilty in a plea deal. He'd been facing up to 20 years in prison on a charge of manufacturing child abusive material.
Emory made a sexually themed YouTube video that used material he shot Jan. 12 in a class at Ravenna's Beechnau Elementary School.
He later apologized to parents and acknowledged using bad judgment.
