GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — A man who admitted to exposing himself to a 7-year-old girl and sending inappropriate photos to a 13-year-old has pleaded guilty in the two cases.

During a Monday status conference in front of Kent County Circuit Court George Buth, Matthew Keen pleaded guilty to three counts of accosting children for immoral purposes and one count of using a computer to commit a crime.
