AP Wire • Jul 21, 2015 at 2:51 PM

Prosecutors say John Balyo is due in Grand Rapids federal court next week, just weeks after his arrest on state charges at a Christian music festival in Gaylord.

Balyo, 35, is charged with sexual exploitation and possessing child pornography. His signed plea deal was filed in court Thursday.

Balyo faces a mandatory minimum of 15 years in prison, but his sentence could be longer. He's being held in the Calhoun County Jail on state charges of criminal sexual conduct.
