McKINNEY, Texas – Chilling radio broadcasts with the voices of an admitted pedophile and his victims were played in a Collin County courtroom Thursday.

CBS Dallas/Fort Worth reports that Plano syndicated radio host, Dan Steffen, pleaded guilty to abusing four victims.

Steffen not only admitted to sexually abusing boys, but he also pleaded guilty to offering someone $45,000 to have his prosecutor killed.

He worked as a radio host out of his home and prosecutors revealed disturbing excerpts from broadcasts talking about and to his victims.

The 70-year-old Plano man hosted a syndicated radio show for small stations across the county under the name Rick Austin.

A Collin County prosecutor testified about her fear after Steffen tried to have her killed while in jail.

Steffen could get anywhere from probation to life in prison when he is sentenced by the judge. »
