Prosecutors say Canadian authorities intercepted a broadcast of Byers Augusta sexually assaulting the boy in July 2015. 

Investigators found videos showing Byers Augusta assaulting the child, including one of him and 62-year-old Ira Task simultaneously sexually assaulting the child. 

Authorities say Task didn’t wear protection despite knowing he had been HIV positive since 1994. Task was sentenced in June to 17½ to 40 years in prison. 

Byers Augusta’s sentencing is scheduled for January.
