Boise man pleads guilty to child porn

By The Associated Press. CREATED Nov 26, 2013

BOISE, Idaho (AP) -- A Boise man has pleaded guilty to two counts of possessing child pornography.

The Idaho Statesman reports 29-year-old Richard Scott Macho entered the plea Monday in Boise's 4th District Court. Prosecutors said police found the illicit images on Macho's computer during an investigation by the Idaho Crimes Against Children Task Force. Macho faces up to 20 years in prison when he is sentenced on Feb. 3.

Macho will stand trial on a separate charge of felony destruction of evidence next month. Prosecutors say Macho helped hide his brother, Greggory Macho, after the brother tried to sexually assault one woman and ran over another in the Boise Town Square Mall parking lot earlier this year. Greggory Macho has pleaded guilty to the attacks and is set for sentencing Dec. 20.
