A Chico man has pleaded guilty to production of child pornography.

According to court documents, Nathan Alexander Drury, 39, filmed a 47-second video of a nude child who was under the age of 12.

The video that Drury produced shows the child being sexually abused, according to U.S. Attorney McGregor W. Scott. Scott says the video was filmed between January 1, 2012, and December 1, 2014.

This case is the result of an investigation by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the Chico Police Department. The arrest was part of a nationwide initiative launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse.

Drury has been in custody since he was arrested on March 23, 2015. He is scheduled to be sentenced by U.S. District Judge Garland E. Burrell Jr. on April 6, 2018. He faces a maximum 30 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

A fire weather watch has been issued from 1pm Monday to 11am Wednesday in the Valley and foothills due to dry and gusty conditions. We'll warm up next week but next weekend is looking much much cooler and wet.
