LOS ANGELES (AP) - A Los Angeles County man who recorded himself molesting his 3-month-old son has been sentenced to nearly 21 years in federal prison.

Thirty-four-year-old Robert Dale Schrader of Littlerock was sentenced Tuesday.

Prosecutors say an investigation began after Schrader sent sexually explicit images to someone in England who turned out to be an undercover investigator.

The boy was seized from his home in January and turned over to child welfare authorities.

Schrader’s lawyer argued that his client had suffered brain damage from an accident and it affected his behavior.



Schrader also faces state charges that he molested two other children.
