Va. man gets 16 years for producing child porn

ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) - A Reston man has been sentenced to 16 years in prison for producing child pornography after he enticed two children to perform explicit activity that he recorded.

Twenty-seven-year-old Alex Ernesto Calderon Velasquez was sentenced Friday in federal court in Alexandria. He had pleaded guilty in July to production of child pornography and failure to appear in court.

According to a statement of facts, Calderon Velasquez communicated online with a 14-year-old girl in Texas. Prosecutors say he extorted the victim into engage in sexual activity on Skype. Authorities say Calderon Velasquez also persuaded a child in Arizona to engage in sexually explicit conduct that was recorded.

Calderon Velasquez cut off his ankle monitoring device and left the state in May. He was arrested in June in San Antonio, Texas.
