An Edmonds man who befriended an 11-year-old boy and had sex with him pleaded guilty yesterday to several sex crimes.
Calvin Elmer Malone, 41, faces more than 17 1/2 years in prison when he is sentenced Jan. 20. He pleaded guilty to first-degree child-rape and two counts of first-degree child molestation.
He became friends with the boy, taking him on camping trips and having the boy spend the night at his home, prosecutors said.
When he was questioned, the boy finally admitted that Malone was touching him and having sex with him. A search warrant served at Malone's apartment turned up nearly 50 pictures of the boy, plus numerous slides of nude boys and men.
