A former host at a popular Christian radio station in western Michigan has pleaded guilty to first-degree criminal sexual conduct.
John Balyo entered the plea Tuesday in Calhoun County curt. The 34-year-old had admitted to sexually assaulting an 11-year-old boy at a Battle Creek hotel in May.
Balyo in July pleaded guilty in a separate case to federal charges of sexual exploitation and possessing child pornography.
He won’t be sentenced in Calhoun County until he is sentenced in federal court in November as part of his plea deal. A charge of second-degree criminal sexual conduct was also dismissed in the deal.
Balyo faces at least 25 years in prison on the state charges. His state and federal sentences will run concurrently.
