Plea deal for Jacques will destroy child porn

Posted: Updated:

BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - A plea agreement that will have a Vermont man spend the rest of his life in prison rather than face execution calls for the destruction of child pornography that was to be used in the trial against him.

The Burlington Free Press reports the information was contained in the plea agreement between Michael Jacques and federal prosecutors who had been prepared to use the child pornography in what was to have been a death penalty trial.

He was charged with the abduction, sexual assault and killing of his niece, 12-year-old Brook Bennett in June 2008.

Jacques is due in court on Tuesday to plead guilty to charges of kidnapping with death resulting and four counts of production of child pornography and one count of possession of child pornography.
