Spensberger’s father, Paul, discovered two pictures of a naked two-year-old girl on his son’s phone after he punished him, the Kansas City Star reported. The O’Fallon Missouri Police Department reported they received a call regarding the photos on Dec. 30, 2017, and opened an investigation.

The toddler in the photo was a relative of Paul’s girlfriend. The pictures were of the girl sleeping on Spensberger’s floor.

The teenager told authorities he took the close-up photos of the toddler “so that he could sell them to a classmate whom he believed to be a pedophile and would be interested in young girls,” the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported.

Spensberger said he had hoped to make about $350 from the photographs.
