A Baltimore man has been sentenced to 35 years in jail for paying women in the Philippines to produce child pornography for him.
Louis Frances Bradley, aged 66, has four previous convictions on charges related to sexually exploiting children.
He was sentenced by US District Judge Ellen L Hollander for producing pornography involving prepubescent children.
As we have previously reported, Bradley admitted paying women to take explicit photos of young girls and send the images to him on social media.
Bradley created two social media accounts that he used between 2014 and 2016 to become friends with hundreds of young women, many of whom had young children or access to young children.
He admitted making 120 payments totalling $8,291 to at least 17 people across the Philippines.
He also paid some of the women to expose themselves on video streaming sites.
The case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative launched by the Department of Justice to combat child sexual exploitation and abuse.
The FBI and the Baltimore Police Department assisted with the case.
