HAMMOND | Christopher Bour pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court Thursday to five felony counts involving the production and possession of pornography involving a child younger than 12 years old.

Bour, 40, of Gary, has a May 15 sentencing date before Judge Rudy Lozano.

Police began investigating Bour nearly a year ago when a woman told police Bour sent her a text message indicating a child was going to be abused, according to court records. Video and images police uncovered in the investigation of Bour led them to Natisha Hillard, 25, of Gary, who is accused of selling her daughter for the production of child pornography, according to court records. Hillard reportedly met Bour through an online dating website.

Hillard pleaded guilty Wednesday to sale of a child by parent for production of child pornography and two counts of permitting of a child by parent to participate in the production of child pornography, according to a plea agreement. One child was as young as 6 months to 18 months old, and another girl was between 3 and 5 years old.

Hillard’s sentencing is set for April 24.
