A Toledo man who recorded himself performing a sex act on a 3-year-old boy could be sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.

Najee Bryant, 25, of 443 Southcrest St., entered an Alford plea Tuesday in Lucas County Common Pleas Court to one count of rape for the Aug. 22 sexual assault on a child. In an Alford plea, a defendant does not admit to committing the crime, but acknowledges evidence is sufficient for a conviction that could result in a more severe sentence. The court treats it as a guilty plea.

Judge Myron Duhart found him guilty and scheduled sentencing for May 13. The judge told Bryant if he doesn’t sentence him to the maximum term of life in prison without parole, he is bound by law to give a life sentence with parole eligibility after 15 years.

Bryant said he understood.

Jennifer Lambdin, an assistant Lucas County prosecutor, told the court that Bryant used his cell phone to videotape himself “knowingly engaging in sexual conduct” with the toddler.

She said Bryant forced the youngster to perform oral sex on him. He later denied to police that he’d done anything to the child, she said, but ultimately admitted he “maybe, possibly” had committed the act.

“This is a rape. It’s a felony of the first degree,” Ms. Lambdin said.

As part of the plea agreement with Byrant, Ms. Lambdin said she would ask the court to dismiss charges of pandering sexually oriented matter involving a minor and gross sexual imposition at the time of sentencing.

Bryant remained in the county jail in lieu of $175,000 bond.

Something is terribly wrong with scum like this. Something is missing in his brain. Inability to even realize what he is doing is wrong???? Or he plain just doesnt care its wrong as long as it makes him happy???? He doesn't even take ANY responsibility for his actions (Alford plea, ..... maybe, possibly he commited the act) this sick f--k needs to rot in maggots until he is eaten alive. Sorry to be so graphic.... but a 3 year old boy!!!! Why???? There are plenty of willing participants out in the world. A 3 year old defenseless child! I just do not understand.

I hope this piece of sh¡T gets what he has coming

some people aren't meant to be brought into the world. too bad there are no tests to predetermine if you will become a serial killer pedophile rapist etc. because this 'person' should have been aborted before seeing the light of day.

save the taxpayers some money and just shoot him in the street because even if he goes to jail the guy is a dead man.

The Cleveland zoo has some big cats that would find him quite tasty. Meat's meat and cat's gotta eat!

I hope he gets prison justice for sure. Shank his @$$...literally. Also I truly hope that nobody ever reminds this poor child of this incident and he is too young to remember. This is sooo sad. How could anyone do this to a child?! I guess I'm not sick enough to ever understand.
