Big Lake Man Pleads Guilty to Child Pornography Charges
MINNEAPOLIS — A Big Lake man has pleaded guilty in federal court to producing child pornography.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office says 47-year-old Joel Zigler admitted to inducing young people to engage in sexually explicit conduct and recording it with a digital camcorder.
The videos were made in a Hibbing hotel room on October 15th and 16th of last year.
Authorities seized the videos, camcorder and other electronics from Zigler’s parents’ home in Big Lake. Zigler was living there at the time of the arrest.
He’ll be sentenced at a later date.
