CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) - A 76-year-old northeast Iowa man convicted of enticing boys into sexual behavior for child pornography has been given 110 years in prison.

The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier says (https://bit.ly/1ao14pL ) a federal judge in Cedar Rapids on Monday sentenced Benton Stong, of Oran. In September Stong was convicted of four counts of enticing minors to engage in sexual conduct to create child pornography and four counts of child pornography possession.

Prosecutors say that in June and July 2012, four boys, ages 10 through 12, spent time and stayed overnight at Stong’s apartment in Oran, where he ran a computer repair business.

Fayette County sheriff’s deputies searched Stong’s home at the behest of some of the boys’ parents. The deputies found child pornography, including videos of the boys.
