NEW ORLEANS (AP) - A 43-year-old Raceland man has been sentenced to 24 years in prison for sexually exploiting children and possessing child pornography.

U.S. Attorney’s Office in New Orleans says Johnny Smith pleaded guilty Wednesday to the sexual exploitation of children and possession of images depicting the sexual victimization of children under age 12.

U.S. District Judge Sarah S. Vance also sentenced Smith to a lifetime of supervised release and ordered him to register as a sex offender.

Prosecutors say FBI agents found videos Smith recorded in which he engaged in sexually explicit conduct with a 3-year-old girl.

Agents also found about seven videos of 17 images depicting children under age 12 engaged in sexually explicit conduct that Smith downloaded and saved to his computer.
