An Army Sergeant who convinced his girlfriend to molest her three year old child and then take pictures for his masturbatory fodder has pled guilty in federal court, this morning, to creating child pornography.

  Wade Perkins, 26, faces up to 30 years in prison when he's sentenced in October.  His now-former girlfriend, Kimberly Epperson, 25, pled guilty earlier this month and also faces a 30-year sentence.

  The child, now four years old, has been placed in protective custody. 

  "There is only one victim and he is in counseling," Assistant US Attorney Tracy Thompson said. 

  According to the criminal complaint, obtained by 1200 WOAI, the pair started incorporating the child into their sex life in 2011.  Perkins was returning from a trip to Oregon when he demanded Epperson perform sex acts on her son, and record it on her Galaxy S cell phone, which was then used to transmit the perverted pictures.

  Perkinks apparently admitted to FBI that he's a master manipulator.
