A candidate for today's horrible human is a 33-year-old Antelope Valley landscaper who pleaded guilty to making child pornography using his 3-month-old baby boy. Robert Dale Schrader came under investigation in January after sending sexually explicit images of a baby to an undercover officer in England, Daily News reports. GPS tracked the photos, which Schrader had taken with his phone, to his Littlerock home, where a raid turned up the baby, as well as children's clothing and computer equipment that police confiscated.

The extremely graphic affidavit says Schrader used his Yahoo email address to say things like, “I have a 3mo boy. Do you like boy? If so, Tell me what u want me to do to him."

The baby has been turned over to the Department of Children and Family Services as Schrader had sole custody of the child, and Schrader now faces up to 30 years in prison come his sentencing on August 18.
