Grand Rapids Radio: Balyo Sentenced On Federal Charges

John Balyo
A former Grand Rapids Christian radio host has been sentenced on federal child pornography and sexual exploitation charges.

WWMT reports John Balyo was sentenced in Grand Rapids on Thursday to 40 years in federal prison.

He pleaded guilty in July to similar charges in Kalamazoo County and was sentenced in Calhoun County last month to 25 to 50 years in prison in a separate case after pleading guilty to sexually assaulting an 11-year-old boy.

Balyo was arrested in late June, following an investigation by Immigrations and Customs Enforcement's Homeland Security Investigations and the Michigan State Police Internet Crimes Against Children.

The state and federal sentences will run together.
