YouTube Star Austin Jones' a Capella cover of "Welcome to the Black Parade" has over 5 million views and he has thousands of teen fans. He was arrested in Chicago and charged with two counts of production of child pornography.
The 24-year-old singer is accused of exploiting his teen fans by allegedly asking underage girls to film themselves doing sexually explicit acts. Authorities say they found dozens of pornographic videos on Jones' phone when he was arrested at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport earlier this week.
Court documents shows, Austin Jones being accused of encouraging two 14-year-old girls to film themselves dancing and exposing themselves. In the conversations with his alleged victims, Jones told the girls these were auditions to "prove" they were his biggest fans, according to documents.
"I'm just trying to help you!" Jones wrote in one message to a victim, according to the documents. "I know you're trying your hardest to prove you're my biggest fan. And I don't want to have to find someone else."
Jones instructed the girls on how to dress and asked them to repeatedly state their age in the videos while they danced, the documents say.
This is not the first time Jones has come under fire for inappropriate contact with minors.
In 2015, he posted an apology video to his YouTube account after he was accused of asking fans to send him videos of themselves twerking.
At the time, Jones linked his alleged battle with depression to him seeking attention by asking fans for the videos.
In the latest case, Jones was charged with two felony counts of production of child pornography.
