Nantucket man pleads guilty to child pornography charges

William Constable, of Nantucket.

BOSTON - A Nantucket man who filmed himself having sex with young girls in Asia has pleaded guilty to federal pornography charges.

William Constable, a self-employed contractor, pleaded guilty to seven counts of sexual exploitation of children and one count of possession of child pornography. He will be sentenced on June 10.

Constable was arrested in October when he tried to retrieve a digital camera he left in a Cape Cod hotel room. A hotel employee who found the camera called police after seeing images of a man having sex with young girls.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Dana Gershengorn says Constable told police he had sex with about 30 girls — most under the age of 12 — in numerous trips to Asia since 1993.
