BATTLE CREEK (WKZO) -- All the pictures we have seen of former Christian broadcaster John Balyo have shown him smiling but it was a grim Balyo who appeared on screen at his video arraignment Monday. 

He was charged with first and second degree criminal sexual conduct in a Calhoun County Courtroom.

It was revealed during the hearing that he had admitted to investigators that he had sex with a 12-year-old boy on May 17th.

That prompted the magistrate to cancel his bond, which had been set at half-a-million dollars.

Balyo was informed that he may get life if convicted.
