ST. LOUIS (AP) _ An eastern Missouri man has been sentenced to 60 years in prison for videotaping his sexual molestation of young children he was baby-sitting.
Gregory Parsons pleaded guilty Monday in St. Louis to two felony counts of producing child pornography involving children under the age of 12.
Acting U.S. Attorney Michael Reap said the 48-year-old Potosi man committed ``horrendous acts that will forever affect these children and their families.''
In April 2008, investigators searched Parsons' home and found photos and video files of abused children. Parsons admitted in his plea that between the fall of 2007 and spring of 2008, he molested children between the ages of 1 and 7.
