RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - A Rapid City man has been sentenced to 15 years in federal prison for producing child pornography on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation.

U.S. District Court Chief Judge Jeffrey Viken also ordered 22-year-old Jesse Gallego to spend five years of supervised release following his prison term. Gallego in August pleaded guilty to one count of production of child pornography. As part of a plea agreement, one count of aggravated sexual abuse of a minor was dismissed.

Federal authorities accused Gallego of taking multiple pornographic photos of a 7-year-old girl he was babysitting on November 2014. Authorities say Gallego took the photos with a cellphone while the girl was sleeping.

Gallego is now under the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
